SEK 5 billion, which is how much all wildlife accidents cost each year, formerly Motormännens Riksförbund, M Sweden states.
The most common accident is a collision with a deer, but it is becoming more and more common with wild boar accidents.
- More hunting is needed to limit wildlife accidents in traffic, they continue to increase from already high numbers, says Heléne Lilja.
She also wants to see more game fences set up.
- We know that game fencing is effective.
But if more people are set up, the side area of the roads must be cleared so that traffic edges can detect wildlife, she says.
So far this year, there have been 1930 wildlife accidents in Sörmland.
- For road users, it is important to be extra careful when passing the end of a fence, a wild boar that crosses a road rarely comes alone so it is important to pay attention.
