Look at what caused a huge traffic jam during rush hour on the Golden Gate Bridge; a pair of deer caught in the headlights.

If you see deer on the golden gate bridge, stop, because they have the right of way.

Drivers gave them their space, as the deer started their journey in the slow lane, eventually they got moving to Marin.

Highway patrol says they couldn’t have timed it any better, traffic was already at a standstill cutting down chances of them getting hit by a car.

This isn’t the first time an animal has been spotted on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Nine years ago an ostrich escaped out of the back of a van to slow the evening commute.
