1. Cars hit animals all the time because animals are too stupid to understand that their hiding instincts won't help them evade a speeding vehicle.

2. Police have microwave-based area denial devices that give victims the sensations of being on fire without causing permanent damage.

3. Thermal infrared cameras can identify animals' body heat even in the dark.

Cars should have microwave transmitters on the front that send a beam of energy at the road-facing side of animals that are crossing or about to cross the road, making them feel pain from that direction so they instinctively run/jump away from the road.

       You think remotely cooking animals is going to give them a better idea about what to avoid ?
