A thrilling video that shows a man crossing a canal by driving his van in reverse over two wooden logs placed parallel to each other has been quite the hit on social media.
The undated video, posted by Twitter user Fred Schultz (@FredSchultz35) on September 19, has already gathered over 2 lakh views. It is unclear where the video was shot or what prompted the driver to take such a risk.
Commenting on the video, a Twitter user wrote, “Whew. That stressed me out just to watch…and I couldn’t STOP watching it! That guy has mad driving skills and nerves of steel. ”
Another person wrote, “what is more shocking? The driver’s skill or the fact those 2 sticks of wood would support a van?”. A netizen jokingly remarked, “If this were part of the drivers road test here in the US,we’d have a lot more Flunkers using mass transit and Uber ,Lol ”.
Previously, nerve-racking clips of drivers successfully executing seemingly impossible manoeuvres, including precarious U-turns on mountainous roads, have done the rounds on the internet,much to the surprise and excitement of netizens.
Earlier in January, a video that showed a driver making a 180-degree turn on a narrow hilly road had netizens on edge. In the nail-biting clip, one could see a blue car slowly making a full back turn as the driver deftly, yet carefully, reverses the vehicle on the narrow strip while making sure that it does not fall off a steep cliff on one side or ram into a hill on the other side.
