There’s also another interesting new ranking for the state.  Alabama moves up in national deer collision rankings.  New State Farm data shows Alabama drivers are 19th in the nation for deer collision risk.  According to new claims data from State Farm, the odds drivers will hit a deer in Alabama in the coming year are 1 out of 127. Last year, odds were 1 out of 132.  The Insurance Information Institute and Institute for Highway Safety partnered to create tips on how you can avoid becoming a statistic.  They are:  Use extra caution in known deer zones, always wear your seatbelt, at night, when there is no oncoming traffic, use high beams, avoid swerving when you see a deer, scan the road for deer and other danger signs, and do not rely on devices such as deer whistles. The months a driver is most likely to collide with a deer in Alabama, mostly due to mating and hunting seasons, are: November, December and January.
