Breakdown cover specialist, GEM Motoring Assist has produced a short video with simple advice for drivers on staying safe on wet and flooded roads.

The main message from the free three-minute video is for drivers to postpone journeys and not attempt to drive through floods. But if that’s not an option GEM Motoring Assist’s video has information on driving in heavily flooded areas, including tips on maximum depths of water to drive through, paying heed to flood warnings and road blocks, how to reduce the risk of stalling and what to do if you do stall in a flood.

GEM chief executive David Williams MBE commented: “The prolonged heavy rain of recent weeks has made driving difficult and sometimes impossible. Many roads remain impassable and others are still at risk of flooding. We have complied this video version of our members’ most frequently asked questions in an attempt to help drivers when rain, spray and increasing levels of surface water threaten their safety on the road.”
