    I would not say people are dump, well yes, but there has to be a weight to flow formula to see how much flow a vehicle can handle. a 1/2 ton silverado I about 6000 pounds should be able to go through 2-4 inches of standing water that is moving @ 5mph with with out getting swept away.....

    An 11,000 pound hummer with a snorkel for the intake and exahust should be able to go through 2ft of water with a low rate of 3ft per second. etc...

    a 30 ton tank could go through a 5 ft deep river with water flowing 100ft per second and not get swept away...

    what happens is water makes cars float and they loose traction cause they are too light (better fuel econ right? eh what ever)

    200 Ton, 1000 ft ocean freighters can force their boat to what ever direction they want in the strong currents of the ocean where they have no traction at all and not get swept away......

    Sorry, nak, but when you can barely see the top of a tractor trailer's trailer up ahead under a bridge (due to the rest of it being covered in water) ... and cars are driving into the shallow end of that water, anyway ... it's a clear sign that people are dumb!
