Sagamore road is one big road. It goes through half of rye and into some of portsmouth which is the next town over. Washington road is also a big road because it stretches through the other half of Rye. This road also reaches a small part of portsmouth . These roads also have a high kill count because on both sides of each of the roads has woods, which are clearly animal habitats. There are also many little water bodies through out Rye and New Castle considering New Castle and Rye are right next to the beach. This effects the kill count because animals need water to live, and sometime they need water considering its the animals habitat.
Roadkill is an unpredictable thing because you never know when an animal is going to cross a road. One thing to keep in mind is just to anticipate an animal crossing. Just keep those headlights on and try to swirve around them. Once you cause roadkill you can never change it back.
