Toad Counting

This is the game played by Australian people during the raining season. To play this game, two cars and people have to drive cars on the road surrounded by bushes. The rule is that two cars leave the same destination and both cars need to count the number of toads they kill until they reach to the goal.  Every time when the car run over toads, it make a pop sound, so it is easy to count. In Australia, toads are considered to be pests since they are not local animals in Australia. They eat domestic Australian insects and plants therefore Australian people don’t feel guilty about killing toads.
