Flooded roads

I've been looking through the news and see there have been flooding in many parts of the UK and yeh loads of motorists seem to get really uptight and start to drive through the floods real fast thinking they can beat the water when in fact it only makes matters worse - I suggest don't drive through floods unless you really have to and if so drive at a slow even speed so as to minimise the risk of water being forced into the engine bay, etc. Take great car when driving an automatic as there is likley damage to its gearbox electronics. Cars are wonderful things but submarines they ain't.
