FHA data reveals Wisconsin deer-vehicle collision statistics

A study was recently done using data from the Federal Highway Administration as well as claim reports from State Farm Insurance, in order to determine the states that ranked highest in the number of deer-vehicle collisions. After the report was done, the state of Wisconsin ranked number seven in the nation.

Officials in the study project that nearly one out of every 78.7 motorists in Wisconsin will hit a deer while driving  this upcoming year. The state of West Virginia has ranked the highest in this nation for deer-vehicle collisions for the sixth consecutive year. The state of Hawaii ranks the lowest.

State Farm officials released the study now because the month of November is the most common months for deer-vehicle collisions to occur. They also added that chances of  a collision occuring are higher between the hours of 6 and 9 p.m. and that deer whistles on vehicles are not always effective.
