Last night I got the 2nd huge scare since I got my car. I'm cruising along at 60 MPH in a 40 (not that much speed in a straight area) and a genuine Pennsylvania suicide deer leaps out onto the road 20 yards ahead of me. I figure there's no way to stop in time, and judging by the angle, we were going to meet at my left front qtr panel, her head into my head, so to speak. So I jump on it HARD, and manage to get past the deer-kind of. It's head knocked my mirror in on the drivers side, and it's eyes were HUGE-eek-
I saw it fall over behind me as I braked to a halt, and then it got up and took off. I got out, straightened my mirror and was much relieved to find it unbroken, just turned in. There was still a little deer hair on it, but that's it. Whew. Can you imagine what a head on impact with a deer would do to the Elise? After cleaning out my drawers, I was able to trek the last mile to my house. yikes.
Anyone else out there have any near misses?
