The month of November is a dangerous month to be on the road in Wisconsin. This is largely due to the fact that mating season for deer falls directly during this month.
In 2010 deer-car collisions accounted for 16 percent of all car accidents that took place in Wisconsin. Motorcyclists are more likely to be involved in a deer-related accident and must use caution when operating their bikes.
Distractions need to be maintained while operating a motor vehicle in order to be alert and receptive to the surroundings of the road. Deer are moving 24 hours a day and usually don’t travel alone. It is important to reduce speeds in areas where deer are prevalent.
