It is impressive the amount of confusion you can cause when you shout "DUCK" in a literal sense.

Hitting ducklings with your car is an express ticket to hell. Just go to the head of the hell-line.

That's why I have a strict no-braking and no-swerving policy for anything smaller than a medium-sized dog

I'll be damned if I get into or cause an accident because a baby duck or fluffy the cat or rocky raccoon decide to cross the road
 
2013-06-09 10:27:06 PM
Canadians? Yep.

Didn't need to click on the link to know it was Canadians smashing into each other because of a farking duck.

/because the link said CBC.ca

I'll make an honest attempt to decelerate if there's noone behind me, but swerving is straight out for anything with less gross tonnage than me.

What idiot would actually determine smashing into the median (and end up flipping your car) is a better alternative than hitting some ducks?  Unless it's the size of a deer, I'm not going to risk my life to avoid an animal in the road.  Sure, I'll stop or whatever if it is safe to do so.  If not, sorry for your luck of being a stupid animal.

What I want to know is why were the ducks even driving to begin with?

They're obviously terrible drivers.

Were these Asian ducks by any chance? Man don't get me started.

Five little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
"Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But only four little ducks came back.

Fredericton drivers. Shoulda known. Home to some of the dumbest drivers in Canada. God help 'em if they install a roundabout on the vanier like they've been talking about...

Runner ducks, probably. Those guys have lead feet.

I'll slow downa give'm a little extra time, but hell no I'm not stopping for a farking duck!

Typical too that the cops shut down the highway to investigate. Farking cops in this country always close highways for every little accident. If there's a death, bet on it being 10-12hrs cause the 1 accident investigator for that jurisdiction is a 4hr drive away.
eg. fatal accident at 1:30am. You'd think they'd want to investigate and get the highway reopened by rush hour? Heeeeellllllll NO! It's way more fun to sit back and watch the absolute traffic carnage that results from closing a major highway during the morning rush.

Hitting a duck and her ducklings in Portland will pretty much get one excommunicated. Hitting a biker is only a matter of doing the paperwork.

Thankfully I've never encountered the situation of having to run over anything cute and fluffy.  I have swerved to avoid skunks the most but those instances have been at night with no traffic for miles and the skunks were near the center line so I didn't need to swerve much while I crossed my fingers that the skunks wouldn't get spooked and spray my car as I passed it.  I've nearly hit a bear and a deer in the middle of the day. No close calls with moose yet. City raccoons are fairly smart, as I watch them wait for cars to pass before they scramble across behind me.

A friend of mine years ago was driving after dark when she ran over a mouse. As a devout vegan, she was horrified and asked, "Should I go back?" and I stifled my laugh and said, "Back for what? If you ran over it, it's mush in your tire now. If you didn't, it's long gone."

That's because ducks have value to society.

but a third car driven by a woman who was too busy texting, was unable to stop and rammed the second car which then hit the first car that stopped

Filled that in for ya

I too have a 'no swerve' policy for non-humans.
I wonder if squirrels are evolving due to 'bad crossers' having
A reproductive disadvantage to 'good crossers'.

Exactly.  The 3rd 4th and 5th drivers should rightly be charged with careless driving.

I was 4th in line behind a woman who decided to go from 50 to 0 on an off ramp of an interstate, during rush hour, to let some geese cross.  I had to swerve onto the shoulder to avoid rear-ending the dude in front of me.

Geese are very dirty animals and a dime a dozen.  I'd have barreled them over.  I grew up in a rural area, and you didn't swerve if it's smaller than a dog.  These city slickers, however, apparently like to stop and let snails cross "for the environment".  She was in one of those smart cars, though, and probably would have totaled her car had she hit them.

There's not one on the vanier, nor any plans I'm aware of for such, but the one on Brookside Drive by the mall is working great, ans makes getting out of the mall alot easier, provided you use the back exit and not the one in front of lawton's.
