5.3. Driver warnings

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
Last update: June 2023

Warning signs aim to influence driving behaviour, reduce speed and increase attention, thus resulting in a reduction in the risk and severity of animal-vehicle collisions (AVC). Several studies have shown that vehicle speed and drivers’ attention are two important factors in wildlife-vehicle collisions. A reduction in speed provides more reaction time, braking distance and reduces the energy of an impact.

Further studies are required to establish the effectiveness of many devices described in this section.
