That is if a study conducted by the Deer Institute - a body comprised of a range of different groups, including charities - is anything to go by, as this has found that the creatures may be responsible for as many as 74,000 crashes on Britain's roads every year.
With this in mind, the organisation has urged drivers to be more aware of their increased presence throughout the autumn months, as the darker weather may make them harder to spot.
Research by the body established there were 42,000 confirmed collisions on the country's highways due to deer, but project leader Dr Jochen Langbein feels the actual number could be as much as 32,000 higher because of unreported incidents.
And he went on to say that the animals are rapidly approaching their "most active" time of the year, meaning more could be present on the roads soon.
