Around here it's porcupines. They're very slow, and just kind of lumber across the road.

Indecisive squirrels probably run a close second.

Salmon are the worst road crossers (during floods). They just keep on swimming against the current over the yellow center line in the middle of the road.

Flocks of galahs often feed on the side of the road. When a vehicle approaches, they'll take off then turn directly into the path of the vehicle. Probably why the word galah is applied to a person who's not too bright.

When I was in the Army in North Alabama, I pulled a patrol one night with a sergeant whose family liked stewed rabbit. Just before daybreak one Sunday morning, a rabbit scooted out on the road and we hit it. The sergeant told me to stop and he ran back and tossed it in the trunk. Now, he said, drive fast up and down this stretch of road and see how many more you can get. If you get five, that'll be enough for my family's dinner. So I did that and before long, we had five of them.

Humans, especially the teenagers clutching their iPhones. Many of them will just cross the street without paying attention. The younger humans don't need electronic distractions to just run out into the street.
