If you are on the road and find a dead animal, which was killed by a vehicle, just report it via App or online form. You can do this right at the location or you make yourself a note and report at home using your desktop computer.
Even now you can do a lot to avoid road kills. For example, it is a widespread misconception that amphibians survive by taking them "between the tires" with your car. Velocities over 30 km / h can already lead to the death of the amphibians, due to the vacuum under the car their lungs can burst.
If you want to be more active in the protection of frogs, toads, newts etc. on the road, you are sure to find an association near you which is working with amphibian protection fences along the roads and looks forward to your help. Contact your local museum to find out more about these associations.
Most road-kills with game animals happen during twilight, drive very carefully here and pay more attention to the edges of the road. The signs "Deer crossing" show particularly vulnerable spots and should be taken seriously, even if you have never seen a game there.
