You may want to consider purchasing ECB vehicle frontal protection for your Toyota.It’s not only off-roaders who need protection, many of Australia’s roads are rife with various wildlife. Animal collisions are more likely at dawn and dusk, when visibility on the roads is decreased, when the Australian wildlife tend to be more active. Reports indicate that during school holidays, long weekends and the beginning and end of daylight saving time animal-related accidents on our roads increase dramatically. Read More

Now coming into our Winter months throughout Australia, the rate of animal strikes on our roads is set to increase. Some of our highest risk areas are also some of our largest regional towns and cities, from Canberra to Cairns, Bunbury to Broom, and many more in between. Contributing factors to motor vehicle collisions involving kangaroos include:
- High kangaroo numbers and the extensive open space areas;
- High speed roads with frequent traffic;
- Driver inattention and ignorance of potentially high risk road sections;
- Driving too fast.
From data collected throughout Australia, the following observations can be made about collisions with kangaroos:
- Peak time for animal strike is between 5:00 and 10:00 PM;
- The rate of crashes is higher in winter;
- There are more collisions following long periods of dry weather; and
- There are more collisions with kangaroos near the full moon phase rather than the new moon phase.
As an Australian manufacturer, East Coast Bullbars are able to maintain a constant flow of Bullbars and Nudge Bars through production, in stock and boxed ready to ship.
