BlinkerSign® Wildlife Warning systems can be designed with sensors to sense movement from any large animal, such as bears, deer, elk, caribou and moose. The signs can flash 24 hours a day, be turned on manually via a toggle switch or key fob and be set for dusk-to-dawn or desired intervals, including migration periods.
Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions Statistics
Nationally, there are more than one million wildlife vehicle collisions every year, according to Washington-based Defenders of Wildlife. More than 200 of those accidents result in human fatalities.
- The vast majority (as high as 90 percent in some states) of reported WVCs involve deer
- WVCs occur more frequently in the early morning (5 to 9 a.m.) and evening (4 p.m. to 12 a.m.), when deer are more active and traffic volume is relatively high
- WVCs occur more frequently in the spring and especially in the fall when animals move around more due to migration, mating season or hunting season
- White-tailed deer and vehicle collisions are associated with diverse landscapes featuring abundant edge habitats
