(11/07/05) WALL – In addition to cooler weather and changing leaves, fall is often a time of increased deer-related car accidents in New Jersey.
According to AAA, the Garden State saw a total of 7,000 accidents involving deer in 2004. Fall is mating season for the animals, which can cause them to act erratically and dart in front of moving vehicles. Damage caused by deer can cost car owners anywhere between $1,000 and $7,000.

Although motorists hate deer mating season, New Jersey garage owners love the additional business the animals send their way. Automobile safety experts say if drivers find themselves about to hit a deer, they should ease off the brakes so the animal goes underneath the car and not through the windshield. Drivers should also avoid swerving so they don’t hit any other vehicles.
