Car Deer Accidents

Car accidents caused by deer may not be all that common in New York City, but in certain parts of the United States Bambi can be a real road hazard. In fact, in parts of Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and Maine, just to name a few, driving at night requires bright headlights, good brakes and lightening fast reflexes.

In other parts of the country, deer may be a small problem, compared to elk which are even bigger. Then in places like Idaho and New Mexico not only do you have deer and elk to contend with but cattle just love wandering down the middle of the road!
