The last one my wife hit was $4,800 in damage to our new car.

I seem to remember seeing "Roo Bars" on photos of vehicles in Australia but I have never been there so I am only guessing they are just a big a pest.

roos can cause serious damage to cars, and accidents when you swerve to miss them
particularly big reds (at 2 metres +) on country roads where you are doing 110kph (if you are behaving that is)
they are also most active at dawn and dusk
when the sun is low and in your eyes

roo bars do offer some protection
mostly against getting hit in shopping centres

so far i have never hit a roo
fingers crossed
