Don’t Veer for Deer

One in every five motor vehicle crashes in Michigan involves deer. With the two most dangerous months for deer crashes approaching, a traffic safety coalition is unveiling a new video aimed at deer crash safety messages for young people. “Don’t Veer for Deer” will be distributed to driver education programs throughout the state, according to Lori Conarton, Chairperson of the Michigan Deer Crash Coalition. Conarton says most injuries and deaths occur when people swerve to avoid a deer and end up hitting a tree or another car. She says when a deer crash is unavoidable, it’s important to have your hands on the steering wheel, slow down and stay in your own lane. Last year, Keweenaw County had the fewest deer crashes in entire state. For the “Don’t Veer for Deer” website, click here.
