In Michigan, the months of October through December bring increased risk to drivers as deer migrate close to suburban streets, highways, and busy roads.
During the dawn, dusk, and dark hours of the day, there is low visibility for divers. This poses an issue when it becomes hard to spot deer in front of your vehicle until it is too late. To reduce the risk of deer collisions, take caution while driving during low visibility times and especially through deer season. Watch for “Deer Crossing” signs as they are markers for heightened deer activity.
Your first main concern should be to make sure your car is in a safe spot. Call the police and file a report for your collision.
Wildlife can cause serious damage to your vehicle. If you have comprehensive insurance, you are most likely covered for deer collisions. Swerving off the road and running into something else would be most likely covered by your collision insurance.
