Driving Through Floodwater
Posted 22 November 2012 - 08:55 PM
The weather of the past few days has caused flooding chaos on many roads in Devon and Somerset.
Driving home from work tonight on some country roads with standing water, in places up to a foot deep, made me wonder: can driving through this cause damage to the car? Where on the Fiesta is the air intake? Does anyone have any tips on driving through flooded roads, apart from the obvious turn around and find another route?
Also does turning on the air conditioning with the heater on make any difference when trying to dry wet seats and clothes after getting into the car when it's chucking it down? Or is this just wasting fuel?

1. Turn round and find another route.
2. Watch some other chimp drive through (or hydro-lock their engine!) to gauge the depth.
