Turn Around Don't Drown
With the recent heavy rain causing considerable localised
flooding on roads throughout the County, Safer Cornwall, has
launched a new multi-agency campaign in a bid to warn drivers of
the dangers of driving through floodwater.
The ‘Turn Around Don’t Drown’ initiative aims to raise awareness
of how dangerous floodwater can be, with the shocking message that
it takes as little as 60cm of standing water to float a car and
under 30cm of flowing water to push a car off the road. Please
