How to Avoid Deer Collisions This Fall

It’s that time of year again: deer season. The Georgia Department of Natural Resourcesis warning drivers to be on the lookout. The fall mating season (when male deer search for females) is peak time from traffic accidents, according to state officials.

Below are a few things motorists should keep in mind:

  • Deer are most active at dawn or dusk.
  • The time change means more deer sightings.
  • Deer usually travel in groups. If one crosses, be prepared for others to follow.
  • If you can’t avoid a collision, slow down as much as possible to minimize damage. Resist the urge to swerve because it could cause more damage.

People often associate deer collisions with rural areas, but further urban development means that deer and human habitats overlap more often. In fact, about 50,000 deer-collisions occur in Georgia each year. Even if you live within metro Atlanta, you may be at risk.

At Pope & Howard, we may not take a deer to court, but we do handle a wide variety of auto accident cases. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident due to another driver’s negligence, call our attorneys at (404) 885-9999 to schedule your consultation.
