Alarming sound tire

The number of animals that are in danger of extinction has drastically decreased by collision with automobiles. The tire ultra sound can save both animals and drivers through a particular frequency that only animals can hear. Tire sound from car exceeding 60km/H has a specific signal to prevent animal’s death on the road. The sound could play a critical role in warning animals of approaching automobiles and saving their lives. This particular sound is transmitted to animals like deer, kangaroos that can hear from a long distances. Only animals could perceive this high frequency wave ranging from 20,000 to 40,000Hz that human cannot hear.
