Watch Alaskans dropping cars off a cliffJuly 6, 2020
In Alaska, it is customary to let cars from 100 meters high on Independence Day. This event attracts a lot of spectators every year and is absolutely free.
The presentation of new cars in the United States is always an extravagant and noteworthy event, especially when car manufacturers tried every possible way to “surpass” each other every time they present a new model. Well, at least that was the case before the coronavirus pandemic.
In Alaska, however, the Fourth of July celebration was traditionally accompanied by the launch of cars in a completely different way.
Without vivid demonstrations, expensive drinks and insanely expensive dinners, the city in Alaska, as always, launches cars from a cliff as part of the celebration of Independence Day.
In case you are interested, all these decorated cars were already old and in a couple of months they should have been sent for scrap. In the video you can see how an old truck and a convertible flew from a height of almost 100 meters. And yes, no one was hurt during these tricks. Cars accelerated and fell without drivers – a stone is put on the gas pedal and the clutch is released.
There are many reasons why people in this part of Alaska celebrate Independence Day this way. At this time of the year, from June 8 to July 5, daylight hours are all 24 hours, which means that letting the usual fireworks display is quite boring.
