We're into that time of year when deer/vehicle collisions occur the most. October and November average about 1,300 and 1,600 collisions respectively. Brian Smiley of Manitoba Public Insurance says their claims data has some staggering figures.



Smiley explains what motorists should be aware of during the next two months as they travel Manitoba highways and roads.



In efforts to educate Manitoba motorists, two maps showing the high-risk areas have been posted to the Manitoba Public Insurance website.

The highest risk areas in western Manitoba occur along the Trans-Canada Highway from Portage la Prairie to Carberry, Brandon, and Virden, Highway 16 near Neepawa and Minnedosa, and Highway 10 north and south of Brandon.
