Safety Officials Work to Lower Car-Deer Crashes

While safety officials are happy about lower road deaths, they are still working to fight a big problem on the nation's roads: deer.

Deer related crashes kill about 200 people every year and cause more than $1.5 billion dollars in damages.

So, eight states have banded together to bring the numbers down.

One idea they are talking about is using urine from a predator near roads to keep deer away.

Right now, Indiana and Michigan are not part of the group.

There is no word if it will expand. However, there could be a lot of interest. Car-deer crashes happen in every state, but Hawaii.
