Sometimes the lines between being skillful and a bit of a daredevil blur and it’s difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins. Having a nice set of skills means that you have the talent to perform something. But there are times when a person performs something absolutely brilliant that has little to do with talent an a lot to do with courage. Take a look at this footage and decide for yourself which one it might be.

A driver of a tanker made the tightest of U-turns on a narrow road beside a cliff face in southern China's Chongqing City earlier this month. In the clip, captured on March 16, a man is guiding the driver of a truck, the back of which precariously hangs over the cliff as he makes a U-turn on the narrow road. The driver was able to complete the U-turn successfully.

This isn’t the first time a footage of China has appeared and blown our minds with the level of driving skills its residents have. We’ve seen them skillfully prevent accidents on icy roads and drive through the steepest paths. They have a great driving etiquette and are always mindful of the other participants of the road. This is why this truck performance shouldn’t surprise us so much, but it definitely does. We’re at the edge of our seats just looking at the back wheel stop at the edge of the precipice. What do you think? Would you prefer having this set of skills or would you like it better if drivers knew how to behave during their everyday commute?
