Effectiveness of Nighttime Speed Limit Reduction in Reducing Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions

The study objective is to provide transportation planners with scientifically-defensible and robust information about whether reducing nighttime speed limits is an effective means of reducing vehicle collisions with wildlife. The results of the study will help to a) increase the cost-effectiveness of wildlife vehicle collision mitigation measures by testing the effectiveness of one mitigation method under consideration for multiple parts of Wyoming; and b) improve safety by reducing collisions with wildlife.
