Preventive advice

Simple, but important, preventive advice before your journey

Thank you for reducing your speed and taking the environment, wild animals and other traffic into consideration.

Your vehicle: Functioning brakes, good tyres, clean windscreen
  • Reduce speed - widen your range of vision
  • Have respect for signs warning for wild animals
  • Use dipped headlights during daytime and headlights when driving in the dark, and do not dip the lights too early
  • Do not swerve to avoid hitting roe deer or small wild animals
Pay extra attention
  • at dawn and dusk
  • when passing pastures and cultivated fields
  • between lakes and by stands of trees on open fields
  • when there is a lot of snow, as animals are often drawn to and wander along the ploughed and salted roads
The moose moves around more than usual
  • when the yearling is rejected (May-June)
  • during the mating season (September-October)
  • during the moose hunting season (September-December)
Wild animal accident
  • Personal injury - give first aid
  • Alarm the SOS, telephone number: 112, give a detailed road and place description
  • Warn other road-users
Find the wounded animal = shorten any possible suffering
  • Mark with a special wild animal accident marking strip, a plastic bag or something else the place where the animal can be found or where it disappeared
  • Do not walk in the trail - never follow an injured animal
  • Never put a run-over dog to death yourself
  • Give a detailed road- and place description to the police as soon as you possibly can
  • Try to indicate an easily identifiable location mark

I am big ...
I am big

12 intelligent people will drive into me today. And tomorrow, and the next day, and the next.

IMPORTANT!

  • All collisions with bears, wolves, wolerines, lynx, moose, red deer, roe deer, otters, wild boar, mufflon sheep and eagles must be reported to the police.
  • Do not forget that, in accordance with Swedish law, you are obliged to register an accident involving a wild animal with the police. You are also obliged to mark the place of the accident. Use the car's trip distance meter to locate the place!
