If you approach a flooded road, path, or walkway follow this rule: Turn Around, Don’t Drown. Driving through flooded roadways can be deadly. Did you know…
- As little as 12 inches of moving floodwater can be enough to float and carry a small vehicle.
- 6 inches of moving water can knock an adult off their feet. Stay away from moving water!
- Driving thru 6 inches of standing water can cause vehicles to lose control and stall. Avoid flooded roads.
- Be aware of areas where waters have receded. Roads may have weakened and could collapse under the weight of a vehicle.
- 12 inches of water is enough to make most small vehicles float. Don’t drive through flooded waters.
- Even a small amount of floodwater can hide dangers such as road collapse and debris.
