Yuck. I wonder exactly how many millions of caterpillars it would take to make the streets slippery with their squashed little bodies? It isn’t something you want to put on your insurance claim either, is it? My car crashed after I skidded on caterpillar mush. That claim could take a record amount of time to be paid out!
Our rail system in Victoria is renowned for not being on time or having services cancelled. It would barely raise an eyebrow if the announcement came over the station speakers that the 5.15 to Lilydale was going to be late due to caterpillar hazard.
