                                   According to State Farm Insurance, Pennsylvania comes in first as the state that has the most automobile and dear
                                   crashes. A survey done by the insurance company showed that 1.5 million automobiles are involved in collisions with
                                   deer each year and have caused 150 deaths and $1.1 billion in damages. Deer migrate and mate between October and
                                   December and that is when most accidents occur. The time that they most often happen seems to be first thing in the
                                   morning and dusk. Since a deer can weight over 200 pounds, a run in with one can cause death to a driver, passengers,
                                   the deer and thousands of dollars in damage to your car.

                                   Based on rankings of the total number of deer accident claims filed with State Farm other states that rank high with deer
                                   car accidents are Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Georgia, Minnesota, Virginia, Indiana, Texas and Wisconsin.

                                   If you are driving in an area that is known to have deer, use your high beams for greater visibility, and slow down if you
                                   see a deer standing on the side of the road. If you startle the deer, it may run right in front of you. Use your horn and
                                   flash your lights until the deer is out of harm's way. Also, if you've seen one deer, there are probably more in the area, so
                                   drive very cautiously. If you can't avoid a collision, try not to swerve. It increases the chances of losing control of your
                                   car. Attentive driving is the best way to avoid run-ins with deer.
