Caution: Watch out for hazards of deer crossing
Lions, tigers and bears, oh my! For the most part, these animals strike fear in most individuals, even while caged. However, they are nothing compared to the furry, timid deer that wreak havoc — literally — on unsuspecting motorists each year.
On average, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports approximately 1 million car accidents in the United States involve collisions with deer each year. About 200 Americans are killed as a result of the accidents each year, and costs range upward of $1 billion in vehicle damages.
