News: Warning Reindeer Ahead; Speed Limit 40 Kilometers per hour.

pocketgpsworld.comFinland's leading national newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat, has reported a novel approach to protecting Santa's Reindeer.

Around 4,000 collisions are estimated to occur between road vehicles and reindeer every year totalling 1.5m in compensation for lost or damaged livestock every year. A standard reindeer is valued at 700 but racing animals and Santa's Reindeer can be worth up to 2,000.
