Maybe that’s why GDOT has some simple advice: “turn around, don’t drown.” That is, don’t drive or walk into standing water. Don’t drive around barricades. And treat flashing red and non-operating signals as four-way stops.
AAA also advises motorists to use extreme caution, check traffic and weather conditions before heading out, pack an emergency kit and have a full tank of gas. The motor club also says drivers should avoid using high-beam headlights (which can blind other drivers), keep a firm grip on the wheel in high winds and increase the space between you and other vehicles.
