Winter Driving

Flooded roads

Don't attempt to cross if the water seems too deep.

Drive slowly in first gear but keep the engine speed high by pressing on the clutch to increase the revs - this will stop you from stalling.

Avoid the deepest water, usually near the kerb.

Remember to test your brakes when you are through the flood before you drive at normal speed.
