A student at Clemson University performed a research project involving cataloging the behavior of drivers when approaching a turtle that was attempting to cross the road. The results were (IMO) disappointing. Out of 267 cars, seven intentionally ran over the turtle and several others aimed their vehicles at it and missed.
Does it surprise you that the number is that high? That low? Do you, or someone you know go out of their way to kill or injure creatures on the road?
