The King of Maneuver



Is it possible for a double-decker bus to make a U-Turn while on a bridge just two lanes wide? Unbelievably, the answer is yes. It takes some skill, guts and lots of patience to be able to do that. Hit play to watch

My dad is a busdriver (also in Germany, where that TV show is from) and he said that this was only possible because they took the side fences off the bridge. Normally a doubledecker bus is too long for that on a bridge, and there is no ordinary bridge that has no fences on the side...

I think the fact that they have the inset reaction shots from the studio guests, like they do on Japanese tv shows. Is this something that is done in a lot of worldwide tv? It doesn't seem to be a North American (or at least a Canadian/US) thing.

Well, I for one, thought that was amazing! They are right, that is alot of school and alot of patience cause I would have ended up in the water with the first turn....

it's not technically a u-turn is it? unless that's the American term for one of those, it's what would be considered, a "three point turn" even though it's more turns than that it the name many people associate. i think in the uk they now just call it a turn in the road
