It can be risky to drive at night, especially if there are wild animals nearby. There is a high possibility of creating an accidents
When traveling at a high rate of speed, it is nearly hard to see one in your path before it is too late.
This is a problem in Finland, where 4,000 reindeer are thought to perish annually from car accidents, costing the country $18 million in losses. Therefore, it was time for someone to take action.
In order to find a solution, the Finnish Reindeer Herders Association was motivated. Spraying the animals with reflective paint stood out as one of the most straightforward yet brilliant ideas.
The animal is essentially given a high-visibility jacket in the hopes that they would glow when the light hits them, increasing the likelihood that a driver will detect them.
According to Anne Ollila, chairwoman of the Reindeer Herders Association, “the spray is being tried on fur at the present, but it may be much more effective on the antlers because they are seen from every aspect.”
