As deer hunting season opens in Michigan, Fremont Insurance would like to remind drivers of the increased risk of a deer-car collision that accompanies this annual outdoor tradition. According to the Michigan Deer Crash Coalition, there were 55,867 vehicle-deer crashes in the state in 2010, down slightly from 61,486 reported in 2009. Historically, as many as half of vehicle-deer crashes go unreported, so actual numbers may be much higher. Last year, 11 motorists lost their lives in car crashes, while another 1,277 persons were injured. According to the Company, there are several steps you can take to put the odds back in your favor when it comes to avoiding deer collisions:
- Stay aware, awake, and sober
- Car-deer crashes occur all year, but are more likely during spring and fall, and at dusk and dawn so drivers should take extra precautions during these times
- Pay attention to deer crossing and speed limit signs. Deer are creatures of habit and signs are installed at known deer crossing areas to alert you
- Be aware that deer are herd animals, and frequently travel single file. If you see one whitetail, watch for others
- ALWAYS wear a safety belt. It is your best defense against injury in any roadway crash
- Multiple independent studies have found that “Deer whistles” are not effective at warding off deer so even if you have one, remain vigilant
Once again I wrote about how important to have a good credit score and a good credit history. Be a person who disciplines on making payments for credit bills regularly made you always getting the best rate on every deal you applied. www.insure.com at the latest article of car insurance shows how your credit history affects your car and home insurance premiums. Yap, both the lenders who use your credit information is your home and auto insurers. Your credit score will correlate to an “insurance risk score” which determine how likely you are to file an insurance claim. Insurance risk scores are similar to credit risk scores that used by lenders to determine whether or not to approve a loan or line of credit.
Craig Watt, a spokesperson for Fair Isaac Corp., told us that “Consumers are becoming more familiar with credit risk scoring, but insurance risk scoring is still fairly arcane.” Both scores appear on your credit information, but the two are not the same thing. “The biggest difference is that insurance risk scores look for stability, but credit risk scores look for a reliable pattern”, said Craig.
