Those closed roads sign are for everyone else. Seems some think they can easily navigate such waters and plow on...until their engines stop. Than the sign means something!
Yep, we had 3 water rescues this morning from people who apparently could not read signs that said "Road Closed." I am not the vindictive type, but I really hope there insurance company refuses to pay the claim.

unless you do not know the road is no longer there.

this is from the floods that just killed 30ish people here in TN a couple weeks ago.

Stay out of the water.

Not saying the guy wasn't an idiot for driving there, but I don't see any "road closed" sign. In AZ that would get the guy a "stupid driver" ticket.

Good chance he was on a run, and the water running over the roadbed hid the washout. So it looked "crossable." Ops over that area were pretty hairy for a while.
