The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and the Nature Conservancy are putting up new warning signs that ask motorists in southern York County to be aware of rare turtles crossing the road.The warning signs are in crossing areas in Wells, South Berwick and York. The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Department are hoping to reduce the highway deaths of two of the state’s rarest species, Blanding’s and spotted turtles.

Motorists are asked to reduce their speed and be on the lookout for jaywalking turtles. Drivers who want to help the turtles crossing the road are asked to pull over to the side of the road and move the turtle to the side of the road in the direction it was headed.
