Absolutely!! And when I am on the road too. Coming home last week about 4:30 AM, I thought I saw a wrong way driver which I have seen before, but it was someone that had already spun out, destroyed their car and was facing me at the edge of an exit ramp. I stopped just about the same time as a trooper was showing up in back of me. The young man appeared ok, all airbags had gone off, and he didn’t appear to be drunk though he was still seated in his car so I don’t know. The trooper said he didn’t need help so I left for the rest of my only 10 minute ride left home. Guess someone was watching out for him too. I’m at the point now having seen just about everything you can imagine on the road, I say a prayer every time I start my car.

I have had 3 deer strikes in the past 10 years. In all 3 cases, I did not hit the deer ---- the deer hit me. Insurance covered me all three times, less deductible. Other than the deer strikes I have not had an accident since I was a teenager, so I consider myself to be a decent driver. However, with deer there generally is no warning, no evasive action to take. I try to watch for bobbing yellow lights reflected back at me ---their eyes are the best indicators of deer at night. But for everyone who talks about poor lil Bambi --- you have not been hit by a full-size deer running flat-out into the side of your car. I say open hunting season year round with no limit!

Correction to the above: There was no deductible, my wife reminded me. It was on my comprehensive so insurance paid 100%. If it had been a fault accident there would have been a deductible. My bad.

I also notice more nuts on the road. I have never seen more serious crashes in residential or in the shopping districts.

Yesterday we came across a 4 car crash in front of a gas station. All 4 vehicles destroyed, cabins filled with deployed airbags, radiators hissing, ect - in a 35mph zone.

A few times in the 30mph zone by my work I've seen cars upside down or on their sides. You'd reckon they would just be fender-benders, not serious crashes.
