When is the risk of encountering wild animals on the road greatest?

The risk of wild animals crossing the road exists throughout Sweden, at all times, all year round. In order to reduce the risk of a wildlife accident happening it is therefore important to know when and where the risk of encountering wild animals on the road is greatest.

When the risk is greatest

  • At dawn and dusk, as animals often travel in search of food at those times.
  • During snowy winters, as animals often travel using the roads when that is the case.
  • During October-December and May-June, as that is when the most wildlife accidents occur.
  • During September-October, as that is when the most wildlife accidents with moose occur.

Where the risk is greatest

  • Along forest edges.
  • Near forest areas with watercourses on one side of the road.
  • Where wildlife fences begin and end.
  • In clear-felled areas (areas where all trees have recently been cut down).
  • After a plough marker with a black plastic bag attached (which means reindeer might be in the area).
