Road kills are generally accidental, are not
predictable and would require more resources to
litigate than we have available.  The WBPFF will be
used to target easy issues where the probability of
winning litigation is high.  This is where activities
are linked with outcomes that have adverse
consequences  on wild birds that are predictable,
easily forseen and the causes of which are
discretionary and avoidable.
