What Is The Best Way To Drive Safely On Roads That Are Flooding?

There are a number of things to consider when driving on roads that are flooding:

  • Always drive over the highest part of the road
  • Drive as slowly as possible through the flooded part of the road
  • Drive through using first gear in high revs with the clutch partially engaged (this minimizes the chances of water going up your exhaust)
  • Never remove your foot from the accelerator
  • Once you're clear of the water, check your breaks in order to dry them out a little before continuing
