You should never attempt to drive through a flooded roadway even if it looks shallow. Did you hear about the woman and her husband were trying to cross a flooded area in southwestern Colorado and were swept into Pole Creek.

Here is a good rule of thumb if you are attempting to drive through a flood get out if you can and check the water depth if it goes past the center of your wheels on your vehicle the water is too high and too dangerous find another route.
