New study helps motorist avoid collision with moose


That’s the advice of University of Northern B.C. professor Roy Rea after studying data, collected from 2005 – 2009, on the most frequent collisions between drivers and wildlife in B.C.

Roadways beside swamps and highways where road salt can be washed into ditches have the highest number of conflicts between drivers and woodland creatures.

The province is posting new warning signs along the most collision-prone northern routes, but Professor Rea predicts they’ll need to be changed about every 5 years to keep up with animal migration patterns.
