A long motorway drive last week got me thinking, and so I did some digging around and found this article from 2011 ...
All told, over the course of six weeks and 19,184 miles of travel, the smooshed bodies of no less than 17,836 insects were discovered -- on the cars' front licence plates alone. That averages to two insects killed (in that particular area of the vehicle) for every 6.2 miles traveled.
So, I wonder, who is truly the most ethical, a veg*n who drives regularly on a motorway, or a meateater who never drives at all, but relies solely on public transport? Of course, we'll get the veggies who also don't drive, and there are plenty of other grey areas, but even travelling as a car passenger could be considered part of the same issue.
So, do you consider the bugs when you drive?
