In NJ, probably more animals get hit than any other state, we have jerkoff drivers and many of them... I dont need to hear the speeder excuse b/c I myself usually go kinda fast on highways, slower at night, and kinda drive like i think im Mario andretti... since ive driven 6yrs ago, ive hit a bunny rabbit
and a couple birds.. some close calls but most all avoidable.
Theres an offramp from crappy Rt1 north near my house where i live north of trenton, nj now... Many times smaller animals get hit there, and moreso now canadian geese get hit along this area of rt1 near the water/ponds. People can only go about 20-25mph along these turns, i mean the speed limit is 15mph but you cant possibly go FASTER than 25mph, car will just roll over lol.
THere were not one but TWO full size canadian geese that got hit one right after another off the side of the turn on the one ramp, i mean no one can say they cant stop from 25mph that fast...
im sure kids even try to purposely hit them, they cross this area a lot due to water and nesting areas along the road.. I know i could probably call the township but where do you file a thing to get a form for the township to place road signs for animal crossings?
