Officer Dave Johnson of the Federal Way Police Department stopped traffic to help a family of ducks — a mother and her 13 ducklings — cross the road.

Suzanne Hitztaler captured this photo of the feathered pedestrians around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, April 25, on South 320th Street just east of Pacific Highway.

The photo has gone viral since Hitztaler posted it on The Mirror's Facebook page.

Federal Way police note that the department takes all pedestrian safety seriously.
