Road Kill

I am preparing a pollution prevention plan for a local government to 
satisfy a SEP issued by the US EPA.  The town has been told by the state 
that it must have road kill incinerated.  It does not permit burial and the 
state does not let municipal incinerators burn carcasses.  The annual cost 
to the town is in excess of $30,000.  Because the State has lowered 
payments to the town in this fiscal year due to declining tax revenues, 
they just laid off a dispatcher at the police department.  Savings of this 
money would allow them to re-institute this important position.  I know 
that the National Laboratories all have programs to prevent road kill with 
signage, lighting, fencing and other devices.  Is anyone familiar with any 
studies aimed at preventing general road kill?  There is a restaurant at 
Moosehead Lake called the "Road Kill Cafe."  Most of the people that go in 
there only buy the tee shirts but do not enjoy eating there!  But then, 
this is not really prevention.

Any ideas?
