Vermont Fish and Wildlife on Monday issued a reminder to drivers to share the road with turtles, who are trying to lay their eggs and move on (slowly, of course).

From now until June, we’re in peak turtle nesting season, biologists told The Associated Press, and our shelled friends have a penchant for picking potentially dangerous locales — such as road shoulders — to lay their eggs.

Vermont’s “turtle guy,” Steve Parren, put it best. Parren noted that

turtles are slow-moving animals in a fast-paced world.

So be sure to keep an eye out while you’re driving around, and please, brake for turtles.
