October 2017

In Minnesota and Wisconsin, the risk of automobile collisions with deer tends to increase during these fall months. In fact, according to a StarTribune article from October 2016, there were 2,141 accidents involving deer and automobiles throughoutDeer Hit Minnesota in 2015 – 82 of which were right here in Washington County.

At Hassis Paintworks, we want to make sure you are safe, first and foremost. Which is why we want to warn you to be wary of deer this fall season. There are many reasons why they are more prevalent during the fall, the most common one being that they are on the move to warmer pastures before winter hits. Plus, there is such a large population of deer in general throughout the state, that there’s a good chance you will encounter one along the road at some point or another, whether you’re in the rural outskirts or even right near the metro areas.

So, if you’re on the road this fall season, be sure that you’re fully alert, not distracted, and you keep your eyes open for potential hazards including deer crossing the road.

However, if you do happen to be one of the licensed motorists who comes into contact with a deer, don’t fret. You may think the damage to your car is too extensive to be fixed, especially at a cost that is reasonable. But you may have another option.
