I would imagine squirrels everywhere would be the worst.

You all heard the saying: Dumb as a duck! They do not sleep that good at night; especially during mating season and they are hard to spot on our roads - until it is too late. That is the one reason skunks are hit so often; they are black on blacktop and they only move at night.

On the other hand the smartest road crossers/users are crows. They use our roads to scavenge for food and you hardly ever see a dead crow on the road. They have good timing. On the other hand hawks/owls are short/narrow sighted and once they set their sights on prey; they will ignore approaching vehicles.

Thank you to the folks who shared such jovial tales!
I'm in tears of laughter about Armadillos and the ninja squirrels.

I say Karma, you patio furniture-eating, bird seed-stealing, insulation-strewing dirtbags.

If you don't look both ways before crossing then you are a bad street crosser. This applies to animals and humans alike.

I have never encountered one, but I have read they actually jump UP and destroy your radiator.
I don't think I've ever seen roadkill rabbit. Hmm. Maybe the 'yotes get them right away?
Pets and deer are the saddest.

Well, no one seems to have posted the obvious video, so here you go:

Canadian Geese are horrible. They always go in rows with their 7 goslings and take like 20 minutes for a crossing and hold up traffic for 15 minutes. They literally do not care if cars are there honking at them. They also liked to hang around near a highway exit by an old house and would often flap up into traffic right as people were coming down the off ramp.

Peacocks are only slightly less annoying, up there with Sandhill cranes...
