A pickup or a large SUV can safely drive through floodwater.
FALSE. 12 inches of water can carry off a small car. 18 inches can sweep away the SUV! Moreover, the road beneath the water may be damaged and the water much deeper than it appears. Do not take the risk. Driving into floodwaters could be the last decision you ever make.
More than 50% of all flood fatalities are vehicle related! Never drive through floodwaters, Heed the “Turn Around, Don’t Drown” slogan.
