What to do if you drive into deep water

shutterstock_263620469You have about 30 seconds to figure out what to do if you drive into high water. Weather patterns are changing and we’ve seen severe flooding in many places recently. I live in Houston and the last few weeks have been overwhelming with rain and floods. Too many lost their lives driving into unexpected high water. Here are a few things you can do if it happens to you:

  • The minute you hit the water, roll down the window before you sink
  • A side window is easier to break than the windshield
  • Remove the headrest and use the metal posts to break a window
  • Teach your loved ones: Turn around. Don’t drown.

Buy a car safety hammer to keep inside the car – I bought one for every member of the family this morning. Odds are you will never need this tip, but it can’t hurt to know these things just in case. Watch the ABC video below. Stay safe my friend.
