Summer in Queensland means storms. Sometimes that means flooded roads. No matter who you are, how late you are, or what vehicle you’re driving, it’s never safe to enter floodwater.
Even if it looks calm, no one can predict what flowing water will do or what’s happened underneath. The road might have dropped or washed away. The floodwater may be deeper or faster moving than it appears. What looks safe can quickly escalate into dangerous conditions. Even shallow water can be powerful enough to catch your tyres and sweep you away in a matter of seconds.
More than half of the flood-related deaths are the result of driving through flookwaters, so don’t risk it.
