Video: Deer Crossing Close Calls

By The Editors

Do you ever wonder how reliable those deer crossing signs on the highway are? Well this video shows that they are at least useful in Germany. This from the LiveLeaK video description:

"Here you can see why deer crossing signs are serious and you should take your foot off the gas - for your own safety. These images were taken during the first year of the electronic test "Stag radar" on the B 202 on Rastorfer Kreuz. Through the system, the number of accidents decreased by 80 percent."

I'm amazed at how heavily used that one stretch of highway is as a crossing. They might want to consider investing in a bridge to get the animals safely over the road like we do out west for Muleys and Elk. Reduce the number of collisions and potential human fatalities as well as being good for the animals.
