To which comes a pair of regulations regarding the safety measures for avoiding wildlife-vehicle collision. Speed limits, warning signs, appropriate use of headlights and most importantly remaining calm while driving can reduce the risk of hitting an animal on the motorways.

1. Watch out for the animal warning sign

Animal warning signs can be huge banners with the picture of some specific animals that are likely to be seen in that area, neon flags to warn the driver and written illustrations specifying the instructions that need to be followed in order to prevent animal's vehicle-collision accidents.

Drivers must watch out for any secret holes, speed breakers, under construction road warning signs and drive accordingly to avoid any inconvenience.

Deers are likely to freeze after encountering the headlights as they cannot see through the shades of orange and red. In such cases drivers must use horns to alert them and wait till these animals cross their path.
