Caltrans Failing to Collect Wildlife Collision Data for Accident Prevention.

Four of Caltrans’ 12 districts, including those covering Orange County, San Diego and the Sierra Nevada foothills, have not collected any roadkill data for the past seven years, documents show. Other districts seem to be underreporting roadkill and are not carefully reporting the locations of collision with big animals like deer and mountain lions. That makes it difficult to identify collision hotspots that could be addressed with wildlife crossings.
