Actual events recently,

Me: "I've seen a deer on the side of the road - it looks injured."

RSPCA: "Is it still there?"

Me: "Oh i dunno i was driving passed."

RSPCA: "Well we're not going out to an animal unless you can see it. Do you know how many calls we get that lead to nothing?"

Me: "Well i saw it quite clearly and it was static with a leg injury next to the motorway."

RSPCA: "We are not parking on the motorway!!!"

Me: "On a slip road next to it."

 

Eventually they went but gave me no feedback.

 

A few weeks later,

RSPCA: "You called us recently - we see that you care about animals.

Would you like to donate or be a volunteer inspector?"

"Oh i need to be seen cos the great big fook off Range Rover I'm driving might just go unnoticed and get crashed into"

 

Really

Don't know about the UK but over here the road safety authority recommend people use their lights in the day in an effort to make cars more noticeable to pedestrians and other drivers.
