Watch out for Deer

Michigan ranks second nationally in deer-vehicle collisions. Translation: in the next 12 months the average driver in Michigan has about a 1 in 80 chance of colliding with a cute little Odocoileus virginianus (White-tailed deer). Washtenaw County certainly isn't as bad as Kent County, but we still rank pretty high relative to most of the state. According to a recent article, Scio Township has the highest number of deer collisions in the county. Just keep in mind that every deer-vehicle collision could be avoided if everybody simply rode bikes.
