Squirrel friend here as well, but I wish they would stop playing chicken with me up here on our north Atlanta roads. Seems like they always wait until the last minute and then dart in front of a car !
LOL, true. I actually read about them, since I love animals. It's their predator avoidance behavior. They are hard-wired to stop, wait, then suddenly dart in some direction because this makes it difficult for a predator to capture them. So, whenever you see one in the street or at the side of the road frozen and looking at you, they are about to do that. If you assume it is going to be in front of your car, you'll probably be safe.
