Watch out for deer!

November has arrived, and this means deer season has as well.

It’s no secret that a deer-related accident can put a lengthy halt on any trip, but can anything be done to prevent it?

One of the most widely known recommendations

is mounting deer whistles on your truck to alert deer of your truck’s presence. These devices are easy to install and a great way to avert accidents. Ultrasonic sounds created by the air passing through the whistles as you drive warn the deer of approaching vehicles and give them enough time to react and steer clear of traffic.

Whistles are a great tool, but not always enough to stop a crash.

November is mating season for deer which explains the increase in activity we see around this time of year. Remain alert while driving and make sure to pay close attention to signs pertaining to deer activity. These signs are placed specifically to make drivers aware they are entering an area known for deer sightings so use extra caution after entering heavily wooded areas with such signage.

Some accidents are unavoidable, even after taking all the necessary precautions to avoid a crash.

Wearing your seatbelt at all times is a crucial detail that can prevent serious harm in the event of an accident. The most important thing to remember is not to swerve your truck to avoid a deer once it does appear. This tactic can make a small incident into a tragedy as trucks has been known to flip over or veer off road completely.
In the case you do hit a deer, it is important to follow a few simple steps to ensure your own safety and the safety of others on the road behind you. Once impact has been made, remain calm and pull your truck over to the side of the road. Put your flashers on and contact police and make a report. It is very important that you document the report so make sure you also call your dispatcher, so they are also aware of the event.
