Michigan Secretary of State: Don’t Veer for deer!

October 3, 2017

Lansing, Michigan – There were more than 47,000 vehicle-deer crashes in Michigan in 2015 and 11 resulting motorist fatalities.

When driving, do not swerve or veer to avoid hitting a deer, as this is often more dangerous than striking the animal. Brake firmly, hold the steering wheel with both hands, come to a controlled stop and steer the vehicle off the road.

Remember that deer are most active at dawn and dusk and that if one deer is visible, others may be nearby. Always slow down when traveling in heavily populated deer areas.
