A report has revealed Goulburn is one of the top animal collision hot spots in Australia.
AAMI conducted an analysis of more than 21,000 animal collision claims between February 1 2019 and January 31 2020. Canberra was the country's most dangerous hot spot. On a state level NSW was closely followed by Victoria.
In NSW, Dubbo was number one followed by Goulburn, Mudgee, Cooma and Inverell.
Wildcare president Philip Machin said winter increased the risk of encountering a kangaroo on the road.
"Animals loiter by the roadside, seeking out the best pick of grass and more commuters are travelling during the danger period - at dawn and dusk and through the night," he said.
Mr Machin advised motorists to drive more slowly in wildlife-rich areas to give them more time to react, be more vigilant and to expect the unexpected.
"It doesn't really matter if there is a string of traffic sitting on one's tail, pushing us ever faster down the road - it is your safety that's important, as well as the wildlife you are about to hit," he said.
The president advised motorists who hit a kangaroo, or came across an injured animal, to stop and check what could be done to both warn other motorists and to care for the animal.
"Your safety is vital and you may not be in a position to stop and check, but when you can contact your local wildlife group such as WIRES (1300 094 737) around Goulburn or Wildcare (6299 1966) to the south and around the ACT," Mr Machin said.
Mr Machin said it was a "good idea to carry a towel in the boot of the car to wrap up a rescued joey or to calm a distressed animal".
