why would you try avoiding a deer these days when you have car insurance and your rate doesn't even go up, when i was learning to drive my dad always said never try to avoid and animal or you might end up crashing and its not worth it,
this sucks... looks totaled for sure, i would love to know what he hit instead, that is some serious damage
exactly what i was thinking. deer would have done alot less damage. here in NH there is alot of woods and steep banks off our roads. im guessing he rolled into the woods. sux to see bc im STILL saving for mine
just hit the F###krs, dogs,cats whatever the hell crosses the road at the same time Im going XXmph. sorry, but Ima aim straight for it & hope it moves the F##k out my way. 2yrs ago, my son & I were on way back from trip to El Paso, TX. I cruise at 90mph, when, still a ways off, out from my left I see a coyote dart infront of me. he/she gets to other side shoulder, then turns around & heads back for whatever reason, Im like, F##k , I hit it with driver side front end. at next rest area, I stop to look at damage & the whole plastic cover is broke completely off. But my Son & I are in great shape.
In MN if you hit a deer and your vehicle shows signs of the animal (hair, blood, or taking a picture of the animal) it is covered 100% with no raise of insurance. Called a deer clause I believe. I hit two deer within a month in two different vehicles. First one literally ran into the side of my car, second one ran in front of me in a rain storm. Neva neva neva eva eva eva swerve for a deer at speeds, if you can brake then brake but dont do something that's going to cause you personal injury or someone else injury.
I only brake in a straight line to avoid hitting them or change lanes once a low speed. Another danger with attempting to swerve at speed to miss them is they are just as likely to move into the path you are taking. Probably least likely to hit one by aiming directly for it and brake.
