This page doesnt get much action, so decided to copy one of my recent posts into here for posterity.
It is easy to underestimate the depth of water, but even easier to underestimate how low your vehicle's air intake is.
I sat at a flood all day and watched the level drop, also watched and laughed at those coming to grief ignoring the road closed signs.
After the level had dropped about a foot (was a 3hr diversion tp avoid the flood), i witnessed a ford fiesta get through the flood. I thought, damn if a fiesta can do it my astra van can do it. Not taking into account that the fiesta is actually quite a high car and the astra van very low in comparison. In i went, then failed Glad i filmed it in all honesty.
Not long after i stopped an off duty policeman came by in his Range Rover and pushed me out with his rubber bull bar.
As i had switched the van off as soon as i stopped, the van restarted 1st time once i was pushed out the other side.
Watch and enjoy
