COSTS OF DEER-RELATED AUTOMOTIVE ACCIDENTS

A sample survey of Michigan drivers involved in deer-related automotive accidents was used to estimate the direct costs of such accidents in property damage and injuries. The estimated average cost per accident was $651. In 1981 the 21,242 deer-related accidents in Michigan constituted 7 percent of all police-reported accidents and resulted in total direct costs estimated at more than $17 million.
