GEM Motoring Assist has produced a short video providing simple advice to help drivers stay safe on wet and flooded roads.
The main message from the free three-minute video is for drivers to postpone journeys and not attempt to drive through floods. But if that’s not an option, the video provides information on driving in heavily flooded areas including: tips on maximum depths of water to drive through; paying heed to flood warnings and road blocks; how to reduce the risk of stalling; and what to do if you do stall in a flood.
David Williams MBE, GEM’s chief executive, said: “The prolonged heavy rain of recent weeks has made driving difficult and sometimes impossible.
“We have complied this video version of our members’ most frequently asked questions in an attempt to help drivers when rain, spray and increasing levels of surface water threaten their safety on the road.”
