Our estimates are based on 705 drivers' reports on the number of animals accidentally hit during individually chosen reference periods. During 1960–2000, a total of 881 animal-vehicle collisions were reported based on 243.6 million driven kilometres, representing 0.37% of the overall mileage drive ...

- ... Determining the factors causing variation in traffic accidents both in space and time are important for management, as it can help in designing mitigation efforts. The annual harvest of red deer Cervus elaphus in Norway has increased from 2,695 in 1971 to 23,597 in 2001, while the number of car-killed red deer increased from 27 to 443 over the same period. I analysed how the temporal variation in ...
