Animal Vehicle Countermeasures

Animal vehicle countermeasures are strategies to reduce the number of animal-vehicle interactions on roadways.

Numerous countermeasures are available, including animal detection systems, warning signs, roadside fencing, wildlife overpasses, and improved lighting.

This section provides resources and trainings on effective methods to help reduce animal-vehicle collisions.
