Stop, duck and listen: This mummy duck teaches ducklings how to cross the road safely

The adorable family waddled their way across the zebra crossing, making sure they looked both ways. 

This is the adorable moment a mother duck decided to teach her ducklings all about road safety as they crossed over a busy dual carriageway. 

The mum and her ducklings used a zebra-crossing to navigate their way across the busy highway, ensuring that they looked both ways as they waddled across. 

In the clip, recorded from a dash cam of a car on the road, traffic pulls across a set of crossroads in Russia before suddenly slowing to a halt as the animals step out into the road. 

The mother duck appears to look both ways to check for oncoming cars before continuing on her nerve-wracking journey. 

Thankfully, the ducks managed to make their way across the road safely, thanks to their close attention to the Green Cross Code. 

The hilarious footage has now gained more than 22,000 views since it was uploaded on July 3.
