An amusing informal scientific experiment in which a NASA scientist places rubber turtles, snakes, and tarantulas along the side of a highway and films them as vehicles drive by. About six percent of drivers intentionally hit the rubber animals and about six percent stop to get them off the highway. Around eighty percent of those drivers who swerve to hit the rubber animals were driving SUVs or pickup trucks.
