Mark your calen-deer! October, November, and December are the most probable months for Ohio Motorists to come across a deer on the roadway. Many of these incident’s lead to an injured motorist with property damage, and lack of insurance coverage. Not a fawn situation to be in!

Precautions & information to be mindful of:

  • Always wear your seatbelt

  • Deer tend to be more active at sunrise and sunset
  • Doe not swerve!
