U.S. DEER-VEHICLE COLLISIONS FALL SEVEN PERCENT

For the third consecutive year, the number of deer-vehicle collisions in the U.S. has dropped and the downturn is accelerating. The percentage decline over the last year is nearly three times as large as during the previous two years combined.  According to State Farm Insurance, 1.09 million collisions between deer and vehicles occurred in the U.S. between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011. That is nine percent less than three years ago and seven percent lower than one year ago. For the fifth year in a row, West Virginia tops the list of states where an individual driver is most likely to run into a deer.  The chances of a West Virginia motorist striking a deer over the next 12 months at 1 in 53, an improvement over a year ago when the odds were 1 in 42. Illinois ranks 32nd among the 50 states with likelihood of 1 in 250. State Farm’s data shows November, the heart of the deer migration and mating season, is the month during which deer-vehicle encounters are most likely. More than 18 percent of all such mishaps occur in November.
