what exactly do you expect people to do about this? you can't seriously expect people to evade butterflies at highway speeds.

The good news is that millions of love bugs die on highways each year too.....

Actually encountered a swarm of butterflies in early September while traveling on SH130. Came over a hill and there was a huge, black cloud hovering over the road. There was no where for me to go except straight through. Initially thought it was a swarm of bees, but realized it was butterflies upon our arrival home.

Love is like a butterfly
As soft and gentle as a sigh

SPLAT!

Oh well.

Between birds and cars and other threats it's fortunate there are millions more out there.

It's not easy, but I speed up to about 95 and swerve to avoid hitting butterflies. Don't mind crossing the middle line to do it. It's that important.

For every butterfly you hit, you should plant a mistflower or milkweed plant somewhere.
