Worst states for auto-deer crashes

Deer-automobile crashes in the US are up 6% from last year. It is an increasing trend, and such accidents cause around 150 deaths and $1.1 billion in damage annually. Statistics for deer fatalities are not available, but these also will be significant. Deer populations have been increasing, and more important, humans are increasing moving into areas where such collisions are becoming more frequent.
The advise is to use high-beam headlights, be careful when seeing a 'Deer crossing' sign and if you see a deer, assume that there will be more of them somewhere close by. These deer are normally very peaceful creatures, so if you are a bit more careful, you will find that these accidents can be avoided.
