Were number 5

http://citizensvoice.com/news/pennsylvan...shows-1.1395266

The chance of a Pennsylvania driver striking a deer is 1 in 76, a new State Farm study shows. That is the fifth highest rate in the nation.



Drivers in West Virginia are twice as likely to hit a deer with their car compared to their Pennsylvania counterparts, according to the State Farm study. Drivers in West Virginia have a 1 in 40 chance of hitting a deer, making it number 1 in the nation. Waugh!

Re: Were number 5

Just goes to show ya--it wasn't habitat or hunters that caused the "No Deer" problem---they moved to WVa

Re: Were number 5

Since I like to stir the pot from time to time I will throw this out there for others to ponder.

Was it because of habitat or because of some other reason the push came for herd reduction.

Lets see WV is now number one in deer/vehicle accidents and as another poster put up a few months ago they just came up with these new hunting regulations.

A bit of a strange way to state it as if they haven't been number one for years.

CHARLESTON (AP) — State Farm says West Virginia continues to be the state where a vehicle is most likely to hit a deer. The Mountain State tops State Farm's annual list for the sixth consecutive year.

Re: Were number 5

Oh you guys have it all figured out. You're so, so right. All herd reduction proposals are due to the insurance companies complaining. Couldn't possibly be that the high rate of road kill deer is a result of high deer populations, and those high populations are the reason for the herd reduction programs.

Re: Were number 5

I've been in the insrance business for over 20 years.I go to meeting all the time where different risks are discussed along with ways to try to mitigate them.Never once has the subject of deer been brought up.

I was just at a meeting last week and we talked about Homeowners risks most of the time but auto was also the subject.Once again,deer weren't even mentioned.Deer claims are such a small piece of the actual loss ratio that insurance companies could really care less.On top of that,they're predicatable so it's easy to adjust rates to compensate.Deer are of very little concern.Big storms like the one heading our way are a real concern.We'll most likely pay out over a billion dollars for just this one event and it's tough to prepare for it because it was predicted like deer claims are.Deer aren't even a blip on the radar.

Re: Were number 5

#5 in the country? i thought there deer were almost extinct here in pa? apparently not too hard to find, at least with a chevy.

as dce has told us many times previously, deer claims aren't a big deal to insurance companys. hopefully, more will read & beleive the words from an insurance industry insider, but i'm guessing.....not.
