Near life-size silhouettes of a New Forest pony, donkey, pig, sheep and cow were placed at the entrance to the home of the National Motor Museum, to help raise awareness about safe driving as the clocks were turned back. Each of the animals was marked with a number, showing how many have been killed by vehicles across the New Forest last year. Beaulieu Enterprises Managing Director Russell Bowman said: “We ask our visitors to drive responsibly across the New Forest, with respect for the wildlife and other road users. We are therefore pleased to host the safe driving campaign and to raise awareness of it.” e silhouettes were seen by Beaulieu’s visitors arriving during the October half-term and throughout the following week at the leading family attraction. e #add3minutes campaign urges drivers to add three minutes to their journey – the extra time it takes to drive some of the most dangerous New Forest routes at 30mph rather than 40mph. According to New Forest National Park Authority gures, 63 free-roaming animals were killed last year. Records of accidents over the last ve years have shown Beaulieu staff with the animal silhouettes for safe driving campaign a big increase when the clocks were turned back, with the peak time for injuries being between 5-6pm on ursdays and Fridays during November and December. e campaign is supported by the Commoners Defence Association, Forestry England, Verderers of the New Forest, New Forest National Park Authority, New Forest District Council, Hampshire County Council, Hampshire Constabulary, New Forest Trust, New Forest Association and British Deer Society. e New Forest Commoners move the silhouettes to di erent destinations in the area to continue to raise more awareness.
