A Reddit user commented on the video saying, "There are risks associated if you decide to drive your car inside, such as damage to your car, but it is completely safe. There is always a work truck in each section in case the animals start acting up, but they are all used to the cars going slowly along the roads. There is the option to take a narrated bus trip instead of driving your own car in."
