Fall is just around the corner (as the crisp mornings here in the Midwest are hinting at), which means it's time to watch out for those crazy whitetails who want to punch a hole in your car's grille. Edmunds offers some tips on how to avoid them, some of which I'm a bit uncomfortable with (the author suggests not bothering with steering while braking if you don't have ABS), and others that simply highlight the difficulty of avoiding a collision. As he states, "it's much like trying to dodge suicidal 200-pound chipmunks on meth." In my opinion, a watchful eye goes furthest towards preventing an accident, because once you're in the collision-avoidance maneuvering stage, there's already a high probability of an undesirable outcome.
