A video of a car driver doing a U-turn is being shared widely on social media with a claim that the car is on the edge of a cliff and any mistake could cost the life of the driver. Let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.

Claim: Video of a car driver doing a U-turn on the edge of a cliff.

Fact: On seeing the video of the same U-turn from another angle, it is confirmed that the U-turn was not performed on the edge of a cliff. There is a road at some depth on the side of the path shown in the posted video. Hence the claim made in the post is MISLEADING.

When the screenshots of the video were run through Google Reverse Image Search, many posts with the same video were found in the search results. Among the search results, the ‘DrivingSkill’ YouTube channel’s upload on 25 December 2021 was the earliest. On that channel, one can see that a video of the same car U-turn from another angle was uploaded on the previous day. On watching that video, it is confirmed that the U-turn was not performed on the edge of a cliff. There is a road at some depth on the side of the path shown in the posted video.

There are also many other videos of the same car on the ‘DrivingSkill’ YouTube channel. They can be watched here. ‘Daily Mail’ has also published an article on the viral U-turn video which can be read here.

To sum it up, the car U-turn in the video was not on the edge of a cliff. There is a road on the side at some depth.
