Translation: What a cute scene!! Thank you for stopping your vehicle.

One viewer thanked the TikToker for stopping his car to let the family of porcupines cross the road safely.


A good example for all drivers & pedestrians to follow


The drivers on the road and the family of porcupines in the clip demonstrated a good example of how to follow traffic rules.

We believe that if all drivers and pedestrians strictly follow traffic rules and regulations like what TikToker and a family of hedgehogs showed in the clip, we will no longer be reported a high number of road accidents for sure.
