Chicken chiongs across pedestrian crossing

On Tuesday (4 Jan), a TikToker who goes by the handle @aloysiustay8 shared a video of the chicken along Neil Road. The video caption read, “have you seen a chicken use a pedestrian crossing?”.

At the start of the video, the chicken was seen waiting patiently at the traffic light junction next to a man.


When it came the time to cross the road, the chicken slowly moved off along with the other pedestrians.


But the chicken did face some struggles. When the green man light was blinking, it still had not made it across.

As if it knew the traffic rules, the chicken started sprinting to the other end of the road when the pedestrian light turned red.


Some curious pedestrians even turned back to look at the chicken, hoping it made it across safely.

Fortunately, the chicken eventually made it to the other side safe and sound and was seen happily hopping about.
