They should move the Deer Crossing signs to areas that have less traffic. Problem solved.

Alternatively, stop collecting statistics about the problem and watch it disappear. Will people never learn?

Having many more squirrels than moose makes a difference in the fatality rates for people hitting animals with cars.
