The mass migration is believed to be an indicator of climate change as the snails sought a more suitable habitat.
Six cars were damaged as they slid across the slippery B14 A-Road near Stuttgart.
"Cars were crushing the snails and the slime was making the road so slippery that people started skidding all over the place," said one driver.
"It was like something from a horror film."
