  DEALING WITH FLOODED ROADS  
 
 
  1. Keep your speed low   Flooded Roads  
   
2. Use first gear
   
3. Keep engine revs high – use the clutch to control speed
   
4. Keep towards the crown of the road or the part with the least water depth
   
5. Check your brakes when clear of the flooding
   
  DEEP FLOOD WATER CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR CATALYTIC CONVERTER
     
  AQUAPLANNING  
 
 
  This occurs whena layer of water builds between the tyres oif the vehicle and the road surface, leading to the loss of traction. This prevents the vehicle from responding to your control inputs such as steering, braking or acceleration. If this occurs do NOT brake or steer. Get off the gas gently, hold the steering firm and when out of the water deal with your position and speed.
