Almost every day a traffic accident happens. This was the reality in Nymburk last year. In some of the riskier sections, hunters, at the instigation of the police, have placed odor fences to deter animals.

Accidents with roe deer and other wild animals that cross the road are increasing in Nymburk. According to police spokeswoman Barbara Schneeweiss, police officers in the region dealt with 288 of them last year.

In an effort to limit the problem, they therefore approached hunting associations with a request that they contribute to reducing the number of traffic accidents with animals in the most risky sections by, for example, placing scent fences. “In several cases, the hunters complied with the police and installed these fences on the roads,” confirmed Schneeweissová.
