Oh Deer! Driving Tips to Prevent Collisions with Wildlife

May 12, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Wildlife are one of the top 10 contributing factors to crashes in B.C. About 11,000 collisions with wildlife are reported to ICBC each year. That’s more than 1 every hour. And experts estimate the true figure is at least 60% higher.

Crashes with wildlife are devastating for humans and animals, in addition to causing millions of dollars of property damage. Collisions involving deer, moose, elk, bear, and caribou typically peak in May, June, November, and December.

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • Practical tips that drivers can apply to prevent collisions with wildlife
  • Why, when, and where these collisions tend to occur
  • The costs and consequences of crashes involving wildlife in B.C.

Presented in cooperation with the Wildlife Collision Prevention Program and the BC Forest Safety Council
