Flooding pedestrian

Recent heavy rains in Gauteng have flooded many roads. In the social media we have shared many of these pics and I remember one of those capturing a vehicle in the middle of such a river with a big red “L” in the back window!

We have shared from the side of the Arrive Alive website some advice and recommendations about driving in bad weather, and also the flood risks for pedestrians and motorists.

It is also important to remember the warning from the Ombudsman that car insurance may not cover the damage caused to the engine by driving through deep water.

Always remember – If you cannot see the surface – it is better not to drive!!

These dangers are however best captured by the above and below videos!!
