Fall is in full swing which means so is deer season. With bucks on the run there are a lot of things to consider this summer and fall when it comes to having your collision facility run in tip-top shape. However, there are ways to combat the chaos to make sure your facility is running smoothly when the customers start spilling in.
Let’s discuss factors to consider with deer season approaching and ways to combat the chaos.
The Odds of Hitting a Deer with a Car in the US are 1 in 116.
Each year, Americans hit 1.9 million animals while driving, including deer. In just one year, The Cost of Deer-Related Accidents Rose from $162 to $4,341. Even though the amount of deer-vehicle accidents has continually declined from 2017 to 2018, the cost of those accidents have jumped majorly. These costs are mostly related to the extensive damage a 300-pound full grown buck can cause to a vehicle.
