  • It's that time of year, watch out for deer on APG

    Oct 24, 2012

    ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. - Aberdeen Proving Ground has a huge deer population for its area. Because of this we average approximately 28 automobile/deer collisions a year. Most people do not pay much attention to the deer crossing warning signs on the side of the road, but statistics say they should. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, auto deer collisions are responsible for around 150 deaths each year. Not only that, they also cause over $1 billion in property damage. With adult deer averaging 250 pounds, the potential for disaster to drivers should come as no surprise. In 2011, there were 14,690 deer-vehicle collisions in Maryland, with 379 in Harford County. And with more than 30 million deer currently in the United States - 280,000 in Maryland -- those numbers are sure to rise. Despite efforts to minimize accidents, an ever increasing deer population means drivers and animals will remain at risk for the foreseeable future. With so many new personnel on the installation and more to come it's time to talk about the deer population once again.
