Appeal to drive with care and save New Forest animals in the darker nights

Appeal to drive with care and save New Forest animals in the darker nights

Take extra care on New Forest roads to save the animals – that’s the message from New Forest organisations as the clocks go back and the evenings get darker.

Drivers are being asked to drive slowly and add three minutes to their journey - the extra time it takes to drive some of the most dangerous routes in the Forest at 30mph rather than 40mph.

63 animals were killed last year on Forest roads: ponies, cattle, donkeys, pigs and sheep.  Sadly, the figure this year is up nearly 14% on the same period last year, with 67 animals having been involved in road accidents since January.

Most of the drivers involved were local people on regular trips, with four main roads seeing the most accidents:

  • Lymington — Beaulieu — Dibden Purlieu
  • Brockenhurst — Sway
  • Burley — Picket Post
  • Cadnam — Godshill

  • Chairman's Annual Report to the Parish Assembly. April 18th 2019

We started the year off in May, finalising our presentation to Natural England, regarding the proposals for the route, through the Parish of the National Coastal Path, the section from Highcliffe to Calshot.
