Running over animals (roadkill)
Is running over animals while driving (roadkill) a serious problem for truckers?
What animals present the worst problem? Deer? Racoon? Squirrel? Which animal do you most commonly hit?
If you had a device that could scare away animals and prevent them from hitting your truck, would you be interested in it?
Do you ever honk your horn as a way to scare off animals from the road? Does it work?
Has an animal you hit with your truck ever caused damage to your truck?
We are a 7th-grade team of students building a science project that can deter animals and we are interested in a trucker's perspective on animals hitting trucks.
