Experiment: Animal - car collision mitigation


How novel! I hope those collars prove to be practical and useful!

It is an interesting idea. I’ve driven through there, and yes, the elk wander over the highway like they just don’t care. I once had to come to a full stop on the highway because they were taking their time crossing, which did not feel very safe.

The problem I foresee is that there are almost always elk close to that stretch of Hwy 101, which makes it seem likely that the lights will be flashing most of the time. The first time drivers see them, they will likely slow down. By the 100th time, they may not notice the lights at all.
