After 11 years of studying Deer/Vehicle Collisions, State Farm is noticing a decline in the number of crashes nationally.  This trend is happening in Illinois as well. According to State Farm Claim Data, the likelihood of a collision with a deer has declined 10% across the state moving Illinois from 30th to 32nd place.  That means drivers now have a 1 in 214 chance to hit a deer compared to last year’s 1 in 162.  In Iowa, crashes went up slightly moving that state from 4th to 3rd place.  Collisions there are 1 in 73 compared to last year’s 1 in 72.
