Road Kill







Just what is the best road kill?

Last Sunday morning at 03:30 I’m driving an empty milk tanker from a dairy in Westbury, via Frome (pron froom), Glastonbury, then on to the M5 southbound for home. There’s no one on the road so I’m kicking the life of it.

This is a ton of fun in an artic (semi).

Just as I came over the top of a hill on the approach to Frome there were a group of rabbits in the road. I thought, If they stay still they’ll be fine – but they’re rabbits. I know I got four of them.

Badgers, they’re messy and when you hit them it sounds like someone throwing a bucket of water on to the road.

Fox’s, kinda boring but lots of them these days.

Deer – best avoid in a car, great sport in a truck.

Horses and cows – to be avoided unless driving armour.


If you ever wonder why I make children cry – you’re reading it.



Feel free to add your own experiences
