So I have included a few Tips on how to avoid hitting or being hit by deer. Sadly within our home, “fleet of Drivers” we have been involved with no less than 6 collisions.
So a Few Tips on Deer. Since there are estimated to be more then 250,000 in Maryland as of September 1 2017, most of us are Likely to see a lot of them
Never wildly Brake or swerve wildly for deer, (because you have cars approaching,& following you so sudden movements can cause an accident). If deer are seen ahead, gradual braking is best & remember while you see 1 deer, they usually travel in groups.
Be on the lookout especially at night deer feed between Sunset & Sunrise.
Slowdown in areas Known for deer crossings, forests & the watershed area common for deer as a good source of food can be found.
Beep the Horn when you see deer to Scare them away.
Lastly if you hit a deer, if at all possible move off the road, out of traffic, if the deer is still alive DO NOT Approach the injured deer, call Police & turn hazard lights on.
If you are looking for ways to see deer more easily and do something about those dim headlights and streaky wipers, check our car repair coupons page for a great deal on Headlight Restoration and a new set of Wipers along with a 51 point pre-season inspection.
