... avoid hitting a crossing deer? When my grandfather was still alive he used to say that if you ever come across a deer or a buck that suddenly steps out in the road that you should not endanger yourself by trying to avoid it. He said that if you don't have enough time to slow down enough so that you can safely avoid it that you shouldn't try to swerve out the way and endanger you own life.

Since my mother almost caused a large accident trying to avoid a crossing chip bag I can agree with the philosophy of this.

Can your question be applied to kangaroos instead of deer......They can be a real problem and it doesn't need to be in a rural area either.......Sometimes they are around golf courses in the metro area.......Also some of them are massive and can cause a lot of damage to a vehicle......But I still think better to risk that than possibly drive into oncoming traffic to avoid them.

aesgard has the right idea. take extra care when in rural areas and watch when you see 'deer crossing' signs. they're there for a purpose.
