November is the Most Dangerous Deer Collision Month

Did you know that 3 times more accidents involving deer happen in November than in any other month? The number of deer-related collisions in the U.S. has increased by nearly 8 percent over the last year. Here are some tips from the Insurance Information Institute on how to reduce the odds of a deer-vehicle collision.
Keep in mind that deer generally travel in herds – if you see one, there is a strong possibility others are nearby.
Be aware of posted deer crossing signs. These are placed in active deer crossing areas.
Remember that deer are most active between 6 and 9 p.m.
Use high beam headlamps as much as possible at night to illuminate the areas from which deer will enter roadways.
If a deer collision seems inevitable, attempting to swerve out of the way could cause you to lose control of your vehicle or place you in the path of an oncoming vehicle.
Don’t rely on car-mounted deer whistles.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
