Mobile wildlife crossing
Accidents with wildlife happen throughout the year, the largest concentration of accidents being in the mating season. The portable wildlife crossing makes it possible to temporarily create a crossing for these animals.
The system consists of two mobile speed traps in combination with speed limit and warning signs, temporary wildlife fencing and traffic cones. The wildlife fencing is used as a funnel to lead animals to the crossing point. The fact that the system won’t be at one location for long periods of time, prevents the driver from getting used to the situation. By preventing this negative conditioning of drivers, it is a lot more likely that drivers will respect the speed limit whenever a mobile wildlife crossing is setup. Because this psychological factor isn’t reliable on its own, the driver will also have a financial incentive to slow down.
