VIDEO: Russian Driver Attempts To Cross Flooded Street … And …

Look, we’ve all been there, you’re driving home and come to a bridge or road that is under water. That water can be very deceiving because it’s very tough to tell how deep the water really is. However, this unlucky Russian driver is about to find out how tough it really can be firsthand.

The Safety Driver Tips goes on to explain that two feet of rushing water will sweep away almost any vehicle including SUV’s and pickups. So at this point, do you turn around when two feet of water gathers around your SUV? Not this driver. Do you back up after water crests the hood of the SUV flooding the engine bay? Not this driver! 

So at what point do you decide the rush to the other side probably should wait until the flooding has subsided? Watch the video as this Russian driver learns a valuable lesson in modern life: When people whip out cameras to video something you are about to do, because they know they’ve potentially hit a gold mine of internet fame, you might want to re-think your plan.
