Deer, oh deer, oh deer
PRINCETON — Bureau County drivers had better get prepared for the next few weeks.
According to data collected by State Farm Insurance, the month of November continues to be the most dangerous month of the year for deer/vehicle collisions, with more than 18 percent of deer/vehicle collisions occurring in November, followed in frequency by October and December. Deer/vehicle collisions are three more times likely to occur in the one month of November than in the February through August time period.
In a statement issued by Chris Mullen, director of technology research for State Farm, West Virginia is the most prolific state in the country when it comes to deer/vehicle collisions, an “honor” which West Virginia has held for the past six years. A driver in West Virginia has a 1 in 40 chance of being involved in a deer/vehicle collision during the next 12 months.
