Yea. It is insane how many turtles don't make it.
Wow. That is a deadly mistake at that intersection Guy. I am used to it because I live here and I have made that turn thousands of times in the last 36 years. 206 is a two lane highway at that spot and there are no conditions that warrant a No Passing zone through the intersection for the 206 motorists. Myrtle Avenue at the Red Barn Farm Market is another example. That is a 4-way intersection with 206 and passing is not prohibited on 206 through that intersection either.On a more serious note, what is your opinion of this that happened to us this morning. Think about it, do you look right before and when entering a road that you have a lane to go into? Seriously, think about this and how you drive. This was at Chew Road and 206.
Was I at fault?
Good point, and I don't actually know for sure this was turtle-cide. But it seems to me if the turtles hatched and left, the shells would still mostly be in or near the hole, wouldn't they?Is it possible some did break out, and the shells were then licked clean after that by a possum or something?
Not if a critter pulled the shells out to lick the insides. Mind you, this is just a theory of mine.Good point, and I don't actually know for sure this was turtle-cide. But it seems to me if the turtles hatched and left, the shells would still mostly be in or near the hole, wouldn't they?
