there is a device that has been sold for 10-15 years in this country for
the purpose of chasing wildlife (mostly deer and such) from your darkened
path. it is essentially a pair of ultrasonic whistles that mount on the
front bumper. probly less than 10 bucks, no fancy electronic gizmos
necessary - works as well on a $500 yugo as a $50,000 bmw.
