Tips to avoid hitting a deer

by The 100 Companies

We had been driving all over rural North Carolina and Virginia with no problems, but then hit a deer on I-575 on July 4. It can happen at any time, anywhere.

But, from October to January is the most likely time to hit a deer and especially at dusk on low-traffic roads. The odds of hitting one in Oklahoma are 1 out of 119, according to State Farm.

Here are some tips to help avoid our fate: Slow down, reduce distractions, use your high beams, be wary of the woods, look for glowing eyes and pay attention to deer crossing signs.
