Each year, thousands of animal-related collisions are reported. These accidents can cause serious injuries and costly vehicle repairs. Living in Florida, this is a risk we know all too well, especially with deer.
If you happen to see deer or any animal crossing the road, always assume that there are others nearby. Do not slam on the breaks, stay in your lane and sound the horn while slowing down. Hard breaking while panicking can cause you to lose control or could spook the animal, causing it to dart in the path of your vehicle.
