First UK trial of electronic deer deterrent devices in Staffordshire

A video by BBC Midlands helps to highlight the issue of deer vehicle collisions at Cannock Chase in Staffordshire (over 160 deer road casualties per year recorded), and demonstrates a first UK trial of 'Deer-Deter' DD430 electronic devices aimed at helping to reduce the problem. These Austrian devices, used extensively in a number of EU countries, as well as 'down under', have blue and yellow light signals (as deer colour vision is best at that end of the spectrum) as well as variable sound signals. View video.

BDS Member, Jochen Langbein, took the opportunity to do some night filming along this stretch of road. View video.
