Any flooded road can be deadly and the condition of the road surface underneath is not known until flood waters subside. It also doesn't matter what size your vehicle is, flood waters are dangerous for all vehicles. When considering your journey, always have a Plan B and equip yourself with multiple alternative routes to stay safe.
As soon as you enter flood water, you are giving up control of your vehicle - if it's flooded, forget it!
