Watch Out, Arkansas! It’s Deer-Collision Season

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetThis is a reminder to be extra careful on the road in the coming months — deer migration and mating season goes from October to December, and that means even more deer on the road than usual!

The Highway Loss Data Institute estimates that there are around 1.3 million deer-vehicle collisions in the U.S. each year, causing 150 deaths and thousands of injuries. In the past few years, the claims for these accidents have gotten more expensive, costing an average of $3,000.

This annual pattern will peak in November and stay strong through December, so keep your eyes on the road and stay safe – especially at night!
