This time of year can be scary when it comes to driving your car. Deer are on the move, which means you have an increased chance of being involved in a car/deer collision. Deer can do serious damage to your car and can cause serious personal injury, even death.

Last week I wrote about the worst roads in mid-Michigan for car/deer incidents. Thank you for the feedback, I was able to use it to write the story because of you. As luck would have it, the day I published the story, our front desk receptionist ended up getting hit in the side of her car by a deer on Aurelius Ave. Aurelius is one of the many streets named that are not good when it comes to deer and car accidents.

Obviously, common sense plays a factor. When driving on country roads, be very vigilant. I drive Upton Rd. to Laingsburg numerous times a week. I am always paying attention, however, this time of year I am extra vigilant. The deer along Upton Rd. like to dart out from the sides of the road. I have had to slam on my brakes dozens of times to avoid a collision. I exercise the same caution when driving any other country road. I also use the same caution driving down roads like Cornell in Okemos. Although there are plenty of residents on Cornell, the deer love the woods and often jump out in front of me.
