It’s only a little bit of water you say…….I should be able to drive through that…….don’t do it.  Here’s why.

  • On average 6 inches of water will reach the bottom of many passenger cars resulting in loss of control or possibly stalling.
  • Cars will begin to float in just 12 inches of water and can leave you stranded.
  • SUV’s and trucks can begin to float in 24 inches of water and can leave you stranded.
  • Water depth is not always obvious.  It may be deeper than it actually looks or the road could have been washed away under the water.  Be extra cautious when approaching water on roads in flood zones at night.

Being stranded in deep water is perilous in any survival situation.  Avoid deep water at all costs;  it’s just not worth the risk.
