in Dundas, walking takes many forms...


...according to species: here a Turtle Crossing sign on the 8okm/h Cootes Drive, a busy road for motor vehicles and turtles, with obvious trauma to the latter. Note to drivers: turtles don't tend to dash onto the road like the rabbits, so please drive with care and let the turtles live to lay their eggs. Some turtle species in this area are considered threatened so it is a matter of species survival.

In the photo you see the road, the sign, and the multi-use trail to the right. Walkers seem to pose little risk to turtles...
