said:In order to avoid such collisions, State Farm says drivers should use their high-beam headlights as much as possible to illuminate deer hiding on the side of the road and to not rely on car-mounted 'deer whistles,' which studies show not to affect the animal.
They're not that 'little' and they're definitely not that 'cute.' A few years ago three raccoons decided to knock over our trash can and sift through everything. They were HUGE!!! And when I went outside w/ a broom to attempt to shoo them away, they just blinked at me and continued w/ their business. Seriously, they were ginormous! I ran back into the house calling for my daddy. And I hate drivers who don't turn off their high beams when it is evident (from headlights) that another car is coming around the bend or approaching. ARGH!macartistkel said:Oh well, keep the high beams on and HOLD down your horn when traveling through deer populated areas. I do that all the time to protect cute little raccoons and possums!!!
I've seen the deer in your area. They are really kinda nuts with the numbers. You need more hunting. Even bow hunting would make a big improvement.nbs2 said:Only problem with this is that it doesn't consider the per mile or per car rate, just the total. How else can you explain VA and PA making the list and MD not. I would like to the the states where a driver is more likely to hit a deer. I can quickly think of two instances in the last month where I almost hit a deer on a road - and I don't know how many times I may not ahve seen them just outside the light projection.
Yep were 2nd! Woot! But seriously Ive been driving for 4 months now and 3 seperate nights have almost hit dear and hunting season is starting soon. Luckly I have missed them all 3 times.ohcrap said:I didn't even look, I knew we'd be on there.
