We hardly have any left here because the drivers just smash them with no regard up on the mountain where they cross.
It’s only a hundred foot span of road but *no*, people can’t slow down to avoid them for that puny amount of distance.
It’s not like they’re darting into traffic at incredible speeds.
You can easily swerve to miss them but people just don’t.
That spot is a scene of massive carnage every spring.
Many species of amphibians all cross there on their way down the mountain to the vernal breeding pools.
The mashed amphibians and all the mammal scavengers who venture out to eat the remains.
Heartless, soulless bastards.
