On roadways where rumble strips are installed to provide a tactile vibration alerting drivers when drifting from their lane, the rumble strips may accumulate road salt in regions where it is used.
The excess salt can accumulate and attract both small and large wildlife in search of salt licks ; these animals are at great risk of becoming roadkill or causing accidents.
Very large numbers of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates are killed on the world's roads every day. The estimated number of birds killed on the roads in different European countries ranges from , to 27 million, depending on the factors such as the geography of the country and bird migration paths.
Mortality resulting from roadkill can be very significant for species with small populations. Roadkill is considered to significantly contribute to the population decline of many threatened species, including wolf , koala and eastern quoll.
In , 25 schools throughout New England , United States participated in a roadkill study involving 1, animal deaths.
A recent study showed that insects, too, are prone to a very high risk of roadkill incidence. The decrease in insects being killed by cars is called by scientists the " windshield phenomenon ".
In —, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds investigated anecdotal reports of declining insect populations in the UK by asking drivers to affix a postcard-sized PVC rectangle, called a "splatometer", to the front of their cars.
This contrasts with 30 years ago when cars were covered more completely with insects, supporting the idea that insect numbers had waned.
In , Dutch biologist Arnold van Vliet coordinated a similar study of insect deaths on car license plates. He found two insects killed on the license-plate area for every 10 kilometres 6.
This implies about 1. One rarely considered positive aspect of roadkill is the regular availability of carrion it provides for scavenger species such as vultures , crows , foxes , Virginia opossums and a wide variety of carnivorous insects.
Areas with robust scavenger populations tend to see roadkilled animal corpses being quickly carried off, sometimes within minutes of being struck.
This can skew data and cause a lower estimation of the number of roadkill animals per year. However, such scavengers are at greater risk of becoming roadkill themselves, and are subject to evolutionary pressure to be alert to traffic hazards.
In contrast, areas where scavengers have been driven out such as many urban areas often see roadkill rotting in place indefinitely on the roadways and being further macerated by traffic.
The remains must be manually removed by dedicated disposal personnel and disposed of via sanitary cremation ; this greatly increases the public nuisance inherent to roadkill, unnecessarily complicates its disposal, and consumes additional public money, time and fuel that could be spent on other roadway maintenance projects.
The study of roadkill has proven highly amenable to the application of citizen science observation methods. Since , statewide roadkill observation systems have been started in the US, enrolling hundreds of observers in reporting roadkill on a website.
The observers, who are usually naturalists or professional scientists, provide identification, location, and other information about the observations.
The data are then displayed on a website for easy visualization and made available for studies of proximate causes of roadkill, actual wildlife distributions, wildlife movement, and other studies.
Roadkill observation system websites are available for the US states of California,  Maine,  and Idaho.
Mohammed Saleem had undertaken a forty-four-day expedition, traveling more than 17, kilometers across 22 states to study and spread awareness on roadkill.
In the Czech Republic, an online animal-vehicle crash reporting system Srazenazver. Regardless of the spatial scale at which the mitigation measure is applied, there are two main types of roadkill mitigation measures: changing driver behavior, and changing wildlife behavior.
There are three potential ways to change driver behavior. Primary methods focus on changing driver attitude by increasing public awareness and helping people understand that reducing roadkill will benefit their community.
The second potential way is to make people aware of specific hazardous areas by use of signage, rumble strips or lighting.
The third potential way is to slow traffic physically or psychologically, using chicanes or speed bumps. There are three categories of altering wildlife behavior.
Primary methods discourage wildlife from loitering on roadsides by reducing food and water resources, or by making the road surfaces lighter in color which may make wildlife feel more exposed on the roadway.
Second are methods of discouraging wildlife from crossing roads, at least when cars are present, using equipment such as ultrasonic whistles, reflectors, and fencing.
Third are mechanisms to provide safe crossing like overpass , underpasses and escape routes. In the US, an estimated 1.
Collisions with large animals with antlers such as deer are particularly dangerous, but any large, long-legged animal e.
Dusk and dawn are times of highest collision risk. The recommended reaction to a large animal such as a moose is to slow down in lane, if at all possible, and to avoid swerving suddenly, which could cause loss of control.
Acoustic warning deer horns can be mounted on vehicles to warn deer of approaching automobiles, though their effectiveness is disputed.
Squirrels , rabbits , birds , or other small animals are often crushed by vehicles. Serious accidents may result from motorists swerving or stopping for squirrels in the road.
There is very little a driver can do to avoid an unpredictably darting squirrel or rabbit, or even to intentionally hit one.
The suggested course of action is to continue driving in a predictable, safe manner, and let the small animal decide on the spur of the moment which way to run or fly; the majority of vehicular encounters end with no harm to either party.
Although strikes can happen at any time of day, deer tend to move at dusk and dawn, and are particularly active during the October—December mating season as well as late March and early April in the Northern Hemisphere.
Penguins , for example, are common roadkill traffic victims in Wellington, New Zealand , due to their skin color and the fact that they come ashore at dusk and leave again around dawn.
Night time drivers should reduce speed and use high beam headlights when possible to give themselves maximum time to avoid a collision.
Furthermore, the glare of oncoming vehicle headlights can dazzle some species, such as rabbits; they will freeze in the road rather than flee.
It may be better to flash the headlights on and off, rather than leaving them on continuously while approaching an animal.
The simple tactics of reducing speed and scanning both sides of the road for foraging deer can improve driver safety at night, and drivers may see the retro-reflection of an animal's eyes before seeing the animal itself.
Wildlife crossings allow animals to travel over or underneath roads. They are most widely used in Europe, but have also been installed in a few US locations and in parts of Western Canada.
As new highways cause habitats to become increasingly fragmented, these crossings can play an important role in protecting endangered species.
In the US, sections of road known to have heavy deer cross-traffic will usually have warning signs depicting a bounding deer; similar signs exist for moose, elk, and other species.
In the American West , roads may pass through large areas designated as " open range ", meaning no fences separate drivers from large animals such as cattle or bison.
A driver may round a bend to find a small herd standing in the road. Yes, but you were roadkill. Neil Perry, on the other hand, stuffs roadkill.
Either that or Granny Clampett picked up some roadkill. You finding a lot of roadkill this year, sheriff?
Now I'll make you the roadkill! We don't serve roadkill at my place. Don't just stare back at me like roadkill.
Crazy in roadkill , Pickard reviewed roadkill records from an area near Oliver between and Concerns about roadkill in the prairies are limited and local.
