Flashing LED beacons warn drivers in areas where large animal crossings are heavy and prevalent. LED beacons are extremely bright, properly alerting drivers both day and night. The beacons can be programmed with BlinkLink™ web-based traffic device monitor and control, saving trips to the system location for diagnostics or programming.
Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions Statistics
According to the "2008 Wildlife-Vehicle Collision Reduction Study: Report To Congress," the increase in wildlife-vehicle collisions (WVCs) is associated with an increase in vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and deer population sizes in most regions in the United States.
- More than 98 percent of WVCs are single-vehicle crashes
- 89 percent of WVCs occur on 2-lane roads
- WVCs occur more frequently on low-volume roads
- Compared to motor vehicle collisions, WVCs occur more frequently on straight roads with dry road surfaces
