If you hit & injure a wild animal, call the nearest wildlife rehabilitation centre or vet. Be careful of handling potentially dangerous animals yourself. If you encounter wildlife that has been killed on the road, report it to roads@ewt.org.za/EWT Road Watch app.

If collision seems inevitable, don't swerve to avoid the animal; your risk of injury may be greater. Maintain control. Report the accident to the police & your insurance. If you encounter wildlife that has been killed on the road, report to roads@ewt.org.za/EWT Road Watch app.

See an animal in the road? Sound your horn in a series of short bursts to frighten it away. Slow down with control, steer around the animal, but stay on the road if possible. If you encounter wildlife that has been killed on the road, report to roads@ewt.org.za/EWT Road Watch app

Slowing down gives you & any animals on the road more time to react. Be extra cautious at night, or if you know there’s a good chance of wildlife coming onto the road. If you encounter wildlife that has been killed on the road, report to roads@ewt.org.za/the EWT Road Watch app.

Please don't throw food scraps or other rubbish out of your car. This attracts wildlife to the road and increases the risk of roadkill. If you do encounter any wildlife that has been killed on the roads, please report it to roads@ewt.org.za or download the EWT Road Watch app.

Nocturnal species are vulnerable to being hit. If you see an animal in the road, dim your lights & hoot. Car headlights blind animals so they don’t always move away. If you encounter wildlife that has been killed on roads, report it to roads@ewt.org.za/via EWT Road Watch app.

If you see one animal while you're on the road, expect that there are others nearby. Be sure to remain vigilant in case they enter the road unexpectedly. If you do encounter any wildlife that has been killed on the roads, report it to roads@ewt.org.za/via the EWT Road Watch app.

Get in the habit of scanning the roadside as you drive & be especially watchful in areas near thick bush & water-the risk of animals running onto the road is higher. If you encounter wildlife that has been killed on the roads, report it to roads@ewt.org.za/via EWT Road Watch app.

As you hit the roads, minimise distractions from passengers, food & phones. If your attention is on the road, you'll be more likely to spot approaching animals. If you encounter wildlife that has been killed on the roads, report to roads@ewt.org.za/via the EWT Road Watch app.
