Love is in the Air and Deer are on the Roads, cautions AAA
Oct. 16, 2018 – Deer mating season is here and AAA reminds drivers to be on the lookout for animals on roadways across South Dakota. October, November and December are the months when most animal collisions occur in the state. The rutting season for deer generally hits its peak in South Dakota in early-to-mid-November.
“We really need to be extra alert no matter what road we’re traveling, but especially in rural and wooded areas,” said Marilyn Buskohl, spokeswoman for AAA South Dakota. “Rush hours are also high risk times because they coincide with when deer are most active. First and foremost, always protect yourself by wearing a seat belt and removing all distractions behind the wheel.”

In the event of a collision with an animal, AAA recommends:
Contact your insurance agent or company representative as quickly as possible to report any damage to your car. Collision with a deer or other animals is covered under the comprehensive portion of your automobile policy.
