TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET that examines methods and strategies of data collection for wildlife-vehicle collisions (WVC). To improve driver safety and develop more environmentally-sustainable highway systems, many state departments of transportation are developing mitigation actions and structures for WVC. The first step of these developments is collecting and analyzing data about the locations, types, and severity of incidents. Presenters will discuss case studies from five different states that have developed methods to collect and share this data. They will also share lessons learned, explore the available analytical tools, and identify effective ways to inform the planning and delivery of WVC mitigation.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Ecology and Transportation.
