Road Kill 2005-2009 Analysis and Graph Weekday in Rye NH
As shown in a the graph I made, the most road kill was on Thursday, this proves that my hypothesis was incorrect and that there is not the most road kill on Fridays. I thought it would be on Friday because that’s when there is lots of traffic on the highways and such.
This is what happened…
5.Wednesday & Friday
This kind of makes sense because maybe people are getting ready for the weekend or they are getting ready for a vacation of some type which causes them to drive more.
This outcome was not what I expected but it does make a lot of sense. I think that how many road kill on a street could affect me because some might not be found until the next day on that road cause no one is there to see it. Some people could have forgotten to look for road kill which means that the road kill could be from yesterday or 3 days ago so that might have changed the data.
Over the years mostly Sunday and Thursday are the most ones that have to most road kill and I think it is going to stay that way for next year too but It could be anything.
I like the topic i am suprised that the most was on a thursday

Why do you think the majority of roadkill is found on Thursdays and Sundays? Do you think you should consider how many people are driving on the road on those days and where they are going? I find that the streets are quieter on Sundays in almost all the communities I have lived in throughout the world. Why would there be more roadkill on that day if there aren't as many drivers on the road? Do you think the drivers that are driving on those days are less careful?
