How to protect your car during heavy rains

Avoid driving through pools of water

Avoid pools of water to prevent water entering your car, and drive through alternate routes if possible.

Drive in first gear & keep the revs high

In case you have to drive through a water pool, ensure your car is in first gear and the revs are high to prevent water entering from the exhaust.

Aim for the highest part of the road

Usually the highest part of the road is the middle as most roads a redesigned to let water drain off the sides. So, you know where to drive?

Be careful while passing other vehicles

Large vehicles can create waves that push water higher than expected and you may stray off your intended trajectory. Be wary and drive accordingly.

Disconnect the batteries

If your car is parked and you suspect water logging, disconnect your batteries and protect all electricals in your car.
