Turns out, a few simple strategies and actions can prevent many wildlife-vehicle collisions.
Many wildlife-vehicle collisions are occurring every year some of which are fatal and can be prevented if the authorities implement a few, cost-effective strategies.
Some of the measures include better signage, wildlife detection systems, fencing and wildlife crossings. These steps can reduce financial and health-related impacts on people, emergency services, and the insurance industry. These could also help prevent unnecessary loss in the wildlife populations.
With ever-expanding infrastructure having a significant impact on wildlife and their habitat, many cost-effective measures that could help reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions are underdeveloped.
The study appears in the Journal of Environmental Planning and Management.
