Here is the problem
Insurance company reports
In a report published in September, 2009 State Farm indicated that the deer-vehicle collision frequency across the United States jumped 18% in the previous five years!
To put it another way, one of these unfortunate encounters occured every 26 seconds. They are much more likely during the last three months of the year and in the early evening.
The average property damage cost of these incidents was $3,050, up 3.4% from 2008.
The report includes a U.S. map showing the percentage increase in each state. For example, California (22%), Oregon (9%), Washington (19%), Colorado (19%), Nebraska (54%), Iowa (17%), Minnesota (9%), Illinois (3%), Michigan (14%), New York (28%), North Carolina (33%), Florida (38%), Alabama (16%), Texas (33%).
