Koala Causes Traffic Jam on Brisbane Valley Highway in Australia: Watch the Adorable Video

Not so fast, little guy! An adorable koala held up traffic on the Brisbane Valley Highway in Australia on Saturday, March 26 — and the traffic jam was caught on camera by a quick-thinking Facebook user.

“Serious road incident on Brisbane Valley Highway this morning,” Mike Phipps joked. “Road closures in both directions. Police officer showed great restraint in not arresting offender.”

The careful patrolman tried to direct the confused marsupial off the motorway and into the nearby grass, as patient drivers stopped their vehicles to watch the furry friend walk up and down the road.

Several motorists even stepped out of their cars to get a closer look at the koala, with many of them snapping pictures and videos on their cellphones.

Phipps added, “Only in Australia! Made our day.”
