Sink Or Swim - What To Do When Your Car Goes Under Water

Being prepared

While tsunamis, earthquakes, tornado's and other natural disasters can't really be prevented or predicted in time, there are simple measures people can take to ensure their safe exit from a car should they find themselves submerged in water.

They've also realised the importance of time when it comes to under-water disasters as every second literally counts.
