West Virginia Leads Nation Again In Frequency Of Deer-Vehicle Collisions

West Virginia Leads Nation Again In Frequency Of Deer-Vehicle Collisions


Michigan, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Arkansas Round Out Top Five

Bloomington, Ill., Oct. 8, 2008

For the second year in a row the vehicles most likely to collide with a deer are in West Virginia.

Using its deer claims data
* from the last half of 2007
* and the first half of 2008
* and motor vehicle registration counts by state from the Federal Highway Administration,
State Farm estimates the chances of a West Virginia vehicle
colliding with a deer over the next 12 months at 1 in 45.

Such a collision is even more likely in West Virginia than it was a year ago
when the odds were 1 in 57.

The probability of a vehicle hitting a deer in West Virginia sometime in the next year
* is roughly two times greater than the possibility that you will be audited by the Internal Revenue Service in 2009
* and 1,100 times greater than your chance of winning a state lottery grand prize if you buy one ticket per day for the next year.

Interesting and useful. Thanks.

I wonder if Grifscoots has an Armadillo-Vehicle Collisions map.
