Tracy, I agree; I have crossed highways only when there is no other option. 
I understand that although a dog may see a car coming, they real can't judge 
whether they will cross before the car hits much above 15 miles per hour.

Doug: getting squished by a car makes one two-dimensional.

: Marilyn, while it's true that a dog will refuse to go if she sees a car
: coming, it's also true that she can only see so far, and, if a car is 
: fast, as they do on highways, she may not see it far enough away to react
: quickly enough to save you both.
: I know this from both lectures and bitter experience.  I was hit trying to
: cross Jericho Turnpike one night.
: I'm with Cindy.  I don't like crossing highways at all anymore.  I know
: sometimes it's the only way to go, but I would much rather not.
