Section 4 – Water – Operating Through
- Drive slowly (not to exceed 5 mph) through standing water to prevent damage to the equipment. The vehicle must not be driven through water deep enough to reach any part of the engine.
- Brakes should be tested immediately after operating through deep water to check for water in the brakes. If the brakes are wet, use the brakes lightly while driving in a low gear to heat and dry them.
- If the brake condition is poor and does not improve after testing, call the dispatcher or supervisor.
