Meanwhile, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed FormerFederal Minister for the Interior Gov of Pakistan posted a video clip on Twitter in which heavy traffic jams can be seen on the road. Due to heavy traffic jams, white light is visible in one row of the road and red light in the other row. Due to this, it appears that there are vehicles coming on one side and going on the other side.

Fact Check:

To investigate the viral video clip, DFRAC first converted the video into keyframes with the help of the InVID tool and then reverse-searched the keyframes. Meanwhile, we found one such video posted on Twitter itself in 2019 by the verified account of the President of UFC, Dana White.

Danawhite captioned the video as – Last night’s traffic in Los Angeles !!!

To corroborate this claim, we Googled the keywords mentioned in the caption and found a similar video posted by ABC News on YouTube in November 2016.

Source: YouTube

The video was captioned as surreal footage shows incredible bumper-to-bumper traffic in Los Angeles as Americans travel for Thanksgiving.

conclusion:

Hence, it is clear from DFRAC ‘s fact check that the viral video is misleading. Because this video is not of Rawalpindi of Pakistan but of Los Angeles of America.
