Welcome to the online home of the Deer-Vehicle Crash Information Clearinghouse (DVCIC) at the Iowa State University Institute for Transportation. The DVCIC, established at the University of Wisconsin in 2001, was integrated with the Deer-Vehicle Crash Information and Research Center (DVCIR Center) in 2005. The DVCIR Center was a “pooled fund” effort.
The DVCIR Center was created to continue and expand the data collection, research evaluation, and information exchange tasks completed by the DVCIC. It was also created to fund updates to this website, annual committee meetings, and deer-vehicle crash reduction research.
DVCIR Center advisory members have included the Departments of Transportation from Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin. The lead agency is the Federal Highway Administration Office of Project Development and Environmental Review.
More information about the original DVCIR Center pooled fund project can be found in the “Pooled Fund” section of this website.
This website was established to be a focal-point resource for practitioners trying to find better information and methods connected to the problem of deer-vehicle crashes.
