Safety Center Webinar Series
The National Center for Rural Road Safety (Safety Center) will host a FREE, 1-1.5 hour webinar series monthly.
October 30, 2019 (11:00 AM to 12:30 PM Mountain/1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern) – A Review of the Effectiveness of Mitigation Measures that Seek to Reduce Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions
This webinar will present the latest information on the relative effectiveness of mitigation measures that seek to reduce animal-vehicle collisions (AVCs). There are an estimated 1-2 million annual collisions with large animals in the U.S. which costs society $6-12 Billion per year. AVCs are most common on rural roads and over 89 percent occur on 2-lane roads (compared to 52% of all crashes). The webinar will review the preliminary results of a Transportation Pooled-Fund Project: TPF 5(358), Wildlife Vehicle Collision Reduction and Habitat Connectivity Study. It has evaluated 28 counter measures that seek to reduce collisions with large animals. The webinar will also demonstrate that there are significant differences between crashes with wildlife versus livestock. It will also provide a peer-reviewed method of cost-benefit analysis for deploying mitigation measures to reduce wildlife vehicle collisions. To register, click here.
