Traffic Advisory for the Week of November 6 - November 12

November 3, 2023

Road Safety Reminder for the week of November 6 - November 12, 2023

Flooded Roads

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.
