If the amount of dead kangaroos besides ACT roads are any indication, it should come as no surprise that Canberra is the nation's capital for animal collision.
New data based on insurance claims made to AAMI showed areas around Majura and Fyshwick had the highest number of collisions between drivers and animals in the country, with 98 recorded.
It's the third year in a row that Canberra has topped the nation for the number of collisions.
The data was based on more than 9000 insurance claims lodged between March 2018 and February this year.
Drivers were more likely to hit a kangaroo while on the road, with the animal making up 96 per cent of insurance claims.
Wombats and wallabies also made up 1 per cent of claims respectively, with claims also lodged for collisions with dogs and foxes.
In the ACT, the postcode 2609, which takes in suburbs such as Fyshwick and Majura as well as bushland near Mount Ainslie topped the list of areas nationally.
Kambah recorded the second highest number of collisions in the ACT with 38, followed by Hume, Tuggeranong/Greenway and Symonston rounding out the top five.
On a national level, Wallan in Victoria had the next highest number of collisions in the country with 52, followed by the Victorian towns of Heathcote and Gisborne with 49 and 41 respectively and Goulburn, which also had 41 collisions recorded.
AAMI spokeswoman Ashleigh Paterson said the figures also showed the peak time of year for crashes with animals was winter.
"As the days shorten, motorists are sharing the road with animals for longer periods of time as they are most active during dawn and dusk," Ms Paterson said.
"Simple things such as being aware of your surroundings, driving to the speed limits and being extra vigilant at dawn and dusk can help keep you and our wildlife safe."
If drivers hit an animal while on the road, the ACT Environment Directorate recommend motorists to report all accidents to injured wildlife to Access Canberra on 13 22 81.
The directorate urged drivers to be more cautious on the road at night and to slow down if they see a kangaroo.
