With warnings about heavy flooding across the UK now in effect its time that you start thinking about your safety while out driving in these dangerous conditions.
Stories are constantly coming in to Car Lease UK from our customers abandoning their cars that have been trapped in flood waters. In reality it really isn’t that hard to avoid getting stuck in a situation like that and unless you are caught in a flash flood it’s very unlikely that you ever will. Firstly if there is a flooded area ahead of you it’s never really sensible to attempt to brave it if you can’t gauge the depth of the water. If the water starts to get into your vehicle it is very likely that this will cause some pretty severe issues and may even result in it ceasing to function entirely. In this situation, you need to be cautious even if you are in a 4×4.
