YSK: if a deer runs across the road in front of you, never swerve. Instead, brake as much as you can safely, and flash your lights if there's enough time.

Why YSK: It could save your life and your car. Swerving makes you much more likely to:

  • lose control of the vehicle
  • hit another driver
  • or even hit the deer (if it would've otherwise made it across the road).

Braking reduces the likelihood of damage to any party involved, even if you do hit the deer.

(Or...you know, it hits you. As deer are wont to do.)

If it's unsafe (or impossible) to brake enough to avoid the animal altogether, maybe because another driver's behind you, or maybe because there just isn't time, brake as much as you safely can, then release the brake right before hitting the deer.

This will buck (heh) the nose of your vehicle upwards, reducing the chance of the deer going through the windshield.

Never speed up if you're about to hit the deer. This is never safer. That's a myth. It just increases the chances of losing control of the vehicle, and the likelihood of serious damage in general.

Post inspired by the herbivore who just pulled a surprise horizontal trust fall in front of my Highlander tonight. Even braking, it ended up being the second time I've ever made contact with a deer on the interstate.

First time, I swerved, totaled my car, and that deer went straight to deer heaven.

This time, even the deer seemed alright. And the car wasn't even dented.

Wish I'd known this sooner. πŸ‘


edit: added it to the title, but forgot to elaborate in here originally - deer have no idea what flashing lights mean. If anything, they'll just freeze in the light. Flashing lights isn't to scare them away, it's to warn oncoming drivers about a possible hazard in the road at night. If it's daytime or nobody else's around, that part's n/a.

Also the commenters mentioning "where there's one deer, there's more" are 100% right. Great warning about safely avoiding herd animals.

Put Down The Brake Kleen and its Tetrachloroethylene

I don't work in a shop anymore, but when I did, we used chlorinated brake clean (or CRC Brake Kleen to be precise) on everything. We sprayed it liberally on brake jobs, or when cleaning up oil spills. I won't list the multitude of ways we used it, but it is a very effective cleaner.

We always told each other "don't breath that sh*t" because we viewed it like Chlorine Gas, but even getting the stuff on your skin is bad for you.

In case you didn't know, CRC's Brake Kleen contains Tetrachloroethylene. Numerous studies have shown an highly increased risk of Parkinson's with frequent exposure to the chemical, and liver and kidney tumors in lab rats. Even color blindness! One of my former fellow mechanics suffered from color blindness. Coincidence? Maybe.

Isopropyl Alcohol is a good substitute with far less hazardous attributes.

I know that car guys, especially mechanics; are usually devil-may-care attitudes towards the chemicals and liquids they interact with daily, but this type of information is also useful to home mechanics, with kids and animals in the garage.

Next time you've got a messy brake job or need to clean up some oily parts, maybe think twice and put down the Brake Kleen. Or at least mask up and wear gloves.

Discussion : Ontario announces a province-wide "emergency brake" for 4 weeks starting Saturday

The Ontario government announced Thursday that it is imposing a province-wide "emergency brake" due to a surge in COVID-19 case numbers and hospitalizations across the province.

The measure comes into effect as of 12:01 a.m. on April 3, the province said in a news release, and will be in place for at least four weeks.

"We are facing a serious situation and drastic measures are required to contain the rapid spread of the virus, especially the new variants of concern," Ford said in a statement.
