'Tis the season for car-deer collisions
October and November are the prime months for deer to collide with automobiles. Most occur when you're driving at or near the speed limit. Now, more than ever, is the time to be using your seat belts -- driver as well as all passengers.
The average cost for repairs to a vehicle is about $2,500 and the loss of your car for a few days. The yellow deer crossing signs help somewhat in making a driver aware that the highway he is on has this danger potential.
