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.

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
