Never Drive on Flooded Roads

Driving on flooded roads is dangerous, and it doesn’t take much to make your car become unstable, lose traction or wash away. According to a float tank experiment using real vehicles at the University of NSW Water Research Laboratory, a small car can float in just 15 cm of water.

That’s the height of an average pen!
