The difference between the Avoideer app and existing animal warning signs is that the Avoideer warns about a real sighting, with visual and audible alarm.
When you register a sighting of an animal, other drivers using Avoideer can take precautions to avoid collision. Your report will be uploaded to the Avoideer server and the GPS position together with date and time of the observation will be pushed out to other users. When they get close to the place you reported the sighting, their IOS device can sound an alarm, and also give visual notification about potential danger ahead.
In USA, approximately 1.22 million collisions caused by the presence of deer each year.
In Norway, approximately 1300 moose is killed in collisions each year.
Colliding with these animals is potentially fatal for passengers and is likely to cause significant damage to your car and the animal.
Avoideer vs traffic signs. The danger of colliding with an animal is reduced if you,as a driver, watch the traffic warning signs, drive at a safe speed and observe your surroundings.
Traffic signs can be missed or even ignored.

It's a must for long road trips. We all know hitting a dear is basically like hitting a train so watch out drivers !

A easy straight forward app that provides an effective means to report sightings, provide detection and give advanced warning to anyone who drives in areas prone to deer/moose activity and movement.
