Wisconsin drivers face high odds of hitting a deer

When a licensed driver operates their motor vehicle in the state of Wisconsin, they face high odds of coming into contact with a deer. In fact, those chances are estimated at 1 in 79 in Wisconsin, according to a new study by an insurance company.

The state with the highest odds in regards to these accidents is West Virginia. This state has held this place for the past six years, and this year the chances of striking a deer with a motor vehicle are 1 in 40 throughout the state. In Hawaii, the odds of hitting a deer are 1 in 6,801, making it the state with the least amount of deer-vehicle accidents.

The Wisconsin State Patrol revealed that deer accidents occur more frequently during nighttime hours. Deer are seen in larger numbers during the month of November, and tend to cross roadways in herds. Drivers should try not to swerve away from a deer due to the fact that they may lose control of their vehicle, or strike someone else’s vehicle in the process.
