It is a fact of life, that on Australia’s roads, there are many thousands of collisions with animals every single year. Not only does it cause the death of the animal, but it causes a lot of damage to vehicles, and in some cases, even the loss of life. When you consider the speed that a kangaroo is travelling at, and then also the speed of your vehicle, once the two things come together, it causes a considerable impact. In some cases, the kangaroo just gets up, and hops away, and you’re left with a car, pickup, or truck that is in such bad shape, that it’s impossible to use it to get back home. If you’re out in the middle of nowhere, then this can really be a life-threatening event.
This is why many people fit 4×4 bullbars in Brisbane to their vehicles, in an attempt to provide some sort of protection when they strike an animal. If you have been considering making this addition to your vehicle, but are not sure if there are any real benefits to doing so, then please read on.
- It saves you a considerable amount of money – When you think of the costs of repairing the front panels, radiator, and the headlights of your vehicle, you’re looking at many thousands of dollars to repair, or to replace it all. With this in mind, it seems like the sensible financial choice to fit a bull bar to your vehicle, which should help to cut down considerably, on the amount of damage that is caused, by an impact with a large animal like a kangaroo.
- It protects you and your family – In the event that you do have a collision with a large animal, modern bull bars are designed to lift the animal up and over your vehicle. In the past, the thing that you collided with, was pushed under the car, and this caused even more damage. Striking an animal at high speed presents a real danger to you and your family, who will be the occupants of the vehicle.
It’s kind of a no-brainer, when you decide to install a ball bar to your car, pickup, or truck. The initial investment should end up saving you thousands of dollars, and it may even save your life. If you haven’t already installed one, and you live in the countryside, then get one put onto your vehicle today.
