OK, so he ran the test in Alabama and got the result you would expect, right?

I'm the odd one in Alabama then. I get out and grab them off the road all of the time. Its sad how slow those things are, they just dont stand a chance

I don't run over them. I don't like picking shell out of my turtle meat.

After observing a couple of idiots intentionally run over the rubber turtle, it would soon have a big super duty broadhead style spike inside.

I'm sure every time wasn't intentional. Some people can't drive for shit! They see an object on the road and get fixated on it causing them to head right for the object. Instead they should be looking away from it and toward the path they want to take. Hitting a turtle on a motorcycle could make for a very bad day.

I have stopped my truck and helped turtles across the road.

Screw the turtle, I don't want to buy a $500 tire, so I try to avoid them.

By the way, why would a Clemson student conduct the test in Alabama? As a defense though the turtle was painted Orange. What is Auburn's colors????

Dumb turtles, it should've taken the local route and stay in the bike lane. Don't they know they don't move fast enough to stay on the hwy.
