More often than not, when I am driving home, I will see one or more deer along the roadways. So far I have been lucky in the last sev- eral years, but the risk is always there and I am al- ways on the lookout for deer. We now have national statistics on deer collisions and you will probably not be surprised to learn that we, here in Iowa, are at higher risk for a collision than motorists in most states. In comparison with other states, residents of Iowa are the third most likely to have a collision with a deer. The top two states are West Virginia and Montana. However, deer collisions have de- clined slightly, both na- tionally and here in Iowa; " Used Tire Headquarters OVER 300 Our Services Include: - Tires (Sales & Repair) Car, Truck, Lawn, Ag, Commercial & RV e Lube/Oil Filter Shocks/Struts e Exhaust e Alignment e Electrical & Oiagnostic Work e Flushes A/C Checks & Repairs - And Much, Much MORE! 95% of our repairs are completed the same day you come in. :m ~=~'1 Our Tire Repairs :F--R~/I~ V|/= are permanent by i " following proce-I Tire RotationI I 4 New BF I dures & I & Balance I I Goodrich I regulations from the I With the l I Tires Itire manufactures I purchase I I and the I of 4 New I I Expires I Department of Tires I 10/31/13 I I I I Transportation m~" Expirers 10/31/13 ~1 Scan Ihe Code Bei0w & "LIKE US" You could: Win prizes - Get discounts and Receive the latest news! www. nonNalktirecenter.com Men-- Fri (7:3Oam--6pm) Sat.

The Iowa DNR and Governor Branstad have worked to keep deer popu- lations in Iowa under con- trol through the numbers that can be harvested dur- ing the hunting seasons. Collisions with deer are most likely during the month of November, with October second and De- cember third. A collision is three times as likely in- November as in the period from February 1 through August 31. We must all drive with increased vigi- lance over the next few months. Iowa DOT Installs "Arch Angel" Device Iowa Department of Transportation motor ve- hicle enforcement officers have laptop computers in their vehicles that they use in doing their jobs. As a safety precaution the DOT is installing a device, called "Arch Angel" that disables the computers when the vehicle speed reaches 15 mph. The officer can still call for help with one key stroke. They can see the location of an emergency that they rfiay be heading to and the location of other officers in the area. Hope- fully the use of these de- vices will improve safety for both the officers and the public.
