Road Ecology blog: Street lighting to increase the visibility of moose (Alces alces) to drivers, E6 highway, south of Ringebu, Norway. Drivers can see moose better at night when they come down to forage on the shrubs and trees along the river. I do not know how effective these lights have been in reducing collisions. However, a possible reduction in collisions may not only be the result of increased visibility. Wildlife, including moose, may also be deterred by the lights and may cross the road less frequently because of the lights. The wildlife warning sign states "particularly high danger for moose". The lines of lights in the first image are from a truck driving by as I used a long shutter speed.
