    A group of fellow students and I are working on a project to reduce roadkill to improve drivers' experiences as well as the safety of animals on the road. We had the idea of integrating an alert system into the Waze app to reduce the number of these collisions. When a living animal is spotted near the street, users will be able to add a pin at their exact location signifying an animal. They can choose the size of the animal from small to large to give drivers specifics of what types of animals to watch out for. To make sure that drivers are not distracted from the road when they get the animal alert, the announcement will be said out loud, rather than popping up on the screen. An example announcement would be, "Watch out! There are medium-sized animals within a mile of your location."
