In Michigan, the months of October through December call for deer appearing often near suburban streets, on the sides of highways, and busy roads.
Most collisions involving deer happen during times of low visibility during the day- dawn, dusk, and dark. This makes it seem as though deer can appear in front of vehicles before you can see them coming. You can reduce your risk of deer collisions by taking note of your surroundings always but especially during deer season. Also, take caution when passing “Deer Crossing” areas.
Safety is your top priority. Make sure to move your vehicle to a safe place and call the police after hitting a deer. They will walk you through filing a report.
Accidental wildlife incidents can cause significant damage to your vehicle while you’re on the road. After determining that you are safe, you might wonder: “Is my insurance going to cover this?”. Comprehensive insurance will cover hitting large wildlife, such as deer.
