Road Safety Reminder for the Week

FLOODED ROADWAYS
Excessive water on a roadway may cause flooding. This can happen gradually or suddenly. Flooding is dangerous and can be life threatening. It is important to understand the risks of water on the roadway. Some of the dangers of a flooded roadway include:

  • The vehicle being swept off the road
  • Floating debris and unseen hazards
  • The roadway collapsing
  • Vehicle malfunction (for example, brake failure)
  • Electrocution if accompanied by fallen power lines

It is best to find an alternate route if you encounter a flooded roadway. It may not be possible to determine the depth of the flood by looking; it may be deep and too dangerous to cross. If you have no other option but to drive through a flooded roadway, be sure to drive slowly. Once you have safely navigated through the water, slowly and carefully check your brakes to ensure that they function correctly.
