Unfortunately it is not restricted to road. As an ex train driver we had the
same problem on rail. Particularly the older wheat trucks that the wheat
loaders would stuff with paper or rag to try to stop leaks. Many birds would
feed on the spilt grain and getting hit by trains.

Except that if the grain trucking industry didn't exist there might
not be as many Superb Parrots in the first place!
