Why do they do that?

I live by a very busy road, and I've seen many animals become one with it over the years. It's always very sad to see animals get hit by cars, but why would they want to be so close to the road?

Teeny, one of the cats from my dad's garage, and the mother of Sassy, Pretty Kitty, and Skitty, has been seen going up to the road many times. We think she lives under the tree that's there, but she also walks up to the road with me when I go to our mailbox. I tell her, along with any other kitties that come with me, that this road, or any road, is not a good place for a kitty to be. I always say "That's as far as you go!" when I get close to the mailbox, and the cats do stay back, but I know that can only work so much.

How can I keep the outside kitties safe? Some of the cats don't go in the front, but I've had to have words with others when they walk up with me.
