Protect wildlife on our roads

Every year in Australia hundreds of thousands of native animals are killed on Our roads. In Tasmania alone over 156,618 native animals were killed as a result of road collisions in 2012. 

While most people will slow to try to avoid hitting an animal on the road, many animals will still be hit and killed by cars, as the majority of animals are less likely to move due to visual cues, and will respond better to loud sounds. 


This is is why I believe that it should be federal law in Australia to warn animals on the road of your presence by honking your horn when you see them. This will significantly reduce the amount of roadkill incidents in Australia, and in turn reduce the number of insurance claims, car crashes, and reduce animal death.
