How will this program help reduce car-deer collisions?

Our data will help to identify the specific locations where, when and why deer cross roads. In these areas we suggest that roadside vegetation be removed or pruned to increase visibility, parking be restricted, lighting be improved, and warning signs be erected. We hope the Oak Bay municipality will work with us to lower and enforce speed limits along roads where there have been a high number of car-deer collisions. But the greatest reduction in collisions will be achieved through educating drivers about the importance of reducing speed, being alert, and understanding deer travel patterns. In Ottawa, the driver education program Speeding Will Cost You Deerly has reduced collisions by 40 per cent.
