It took about half a day to do all of the reporting for the deer impact on our car. Police, insurance company, collision reporting. Related services, towing, collision repair and car rental, were also engaged.
The car will need a new bumper, front quarter panel, hood, door and mirror. And it will take about a week or so for the repairs.
It is clear to me that there is a very well defined set of processes to deal with car accidents. What is not clear to me is whether there is a well defined process to avoid deer impacts.
Apparently so. My personal trainer told me about deer whistles. The whistle is an animal alert, deer warning device that aids in accident prevention with animals. Who knew?
I wonder if they work.
