Rate of driver, deer collisions decrease in Illinois

Posted:

The chances of Illinois drivers hitting deer on the road is apparently dropping. That's according to a study from State Farm.

According to its claim data, the likelihood of a collision with a deer has declined across the state by about 10 percent.

The group says rates across the nation have also dropped. Illinois moved from 30th to 32nd for number of deer related crashes. State Farm says drivers how have a 1 in 214 chance to hit a deer. The hope is the rate is going down because of better driver awareness.
