This is exactly the same situation we face here in Australia, and having had 
many "close encounters of the kangaroo kind", the latest yesterday which 
cost me my trailer and its load, damage to the vehicle and a severe shake-up 
to myself and passenger who are now both very lucky to be alive, I am 
particularly sensitive to this issue.

As a beekeeper, and one who wishes to conserve as much natural forage as 
possible, I can relate to this effort to improve those attributes by 
utilising the space along transport corridors. However the consequences for 
safety along those routes cannot be taken lightly.

 I wish you success in the effort to find a win-win situation, because we 
need it here too!
