I have mule deer-vehicle collision data on highways.  Is it appropriate to use these tools on a road network?  It seems the underlying assumption of randomness would be applied across the extent of the highway not just on the highway.  If so, any pattern of accidents would look non-random to the program.  I have heard about the SANET toolbar that calculates these statistics for networks, but I'm not sure if I have to go there or not.  Does anyone know?
