Deer are certainly a problem here in New Jersey. No matter what part of the state you travel to, you're bound to run into one.

The danger is even greater on our roads. With so many cars traveling at any given time, a collision is sure to occur.

So what should you do when faced with this situation? Sometimes the deer run out so fast that there's barely any time to react.

But there are times when enough distance is given for you to be ready. As you approach the deer, be mindful of what you are doing so you don't increase the odds of a collision.
