Traffic Advisory for the Week of November 20 - November 26November 17, 2023
Road Safety Reminder for the week of November 13 - November 19, 2023
Excessive water on a road may cause flooding. This can happen gradually or suddenly. It is important to understand the dangers of water on the road, including:
- Being swept off the road.
- Floating debris and unseen hazards.
- The road collapsing.
- Vehicle malfunction.
- Electrocution if there are fallen power lines.
It may not be possible to determine the depth of the flood by looking. If the water is deep, the road may be too dangerous to cross. It is best to find another route. If you have no other option but to drive through a flooded road, drive slowly. After you make it through the water, test your brakes to make sure they work correctly.
