The Other Deer Season in Georgia

The good news is the number of deer-car accidents declined last year, according to an analysis done by a large insurance company. They calculate the odds of a driver in the United States striking a deer as 1 in 174. This represents an improvement from last year when the odds were 1 in 167.

While Georgia was not in the top states for deer collisions, it is no reason to be complacent. The insurance company estimated that there were about 1.22 million collisions from last July to this July. They were encouraged by the decline, which was about 3.5 percent, and by the overall trend, showing a decline of about 2.5 percent over the last five years.

November has the highest number of deer-related collisions and October is close behind, so now is the time to be particularly cautious when driving roads where deer may be crossing. Deer are herd animals, so if you see one deer, it is likely there are more nearby.

Evening and dusk are when they are most active, so be careful not to overdrive your headlights. And be especially careful when riding a motorcycle, as striking a deer often results in fatal injuries for the rider.

Wonderful law firm that cares

I was injured in a terrible fall which left my foot, arm back and knee badly bruised. The Dozier Law Firm was awesome. Attorney Dustin Hamilton reviewed and accepted my case and within a few months he was able to settle my case for more than I ever imagine. The Dozier Law Firm is A+ in my book.
