The increasing number of deer-vehicle collisions (DVCs) has had a significant impact on public safety. Scientific countermeasures require the systematization of DVC data. In Japan, however, DVC countermeasures are still insufficient due to the lack of DVC data systematization. The objective of this study was to review the progressive approach used for DVC data systematization in Germany, North America (Canada and the USA.), Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Additionally, we describe the prospect of DVC data systematization in order to develop scientific countermeasures in Japan.
