    You'd be surprised.

    I saw a film of testing they did locally, ran a car off the pier into the water to see if you could escape with power windows. Damn funny watching the car sink with the windshield wipers working as it settled on the bottom. The wipers did seen to lose their effectiveness under water, they did not appear to be keeping the windshield very dry, but they were operating.

    Bottom line, power windows worked, wipers worked. Engine did stall, however.. :) that was in fresh water though, salt water would be more conductive than fresh water I believe, might not with in the ocean.

    I think yesterday was the first day without rain in about 2 weeks here.
     
  4. After 44 years you'd think that Chappaquiddick bridge should have been improved.

    In Katrina, when cars went under, a lot of them would cut on their headlights, horns, radios, whatever.

    Patrol cars that flooded were cutting on their overheads all by themselves. :supergrin:

    Is that like his "I can't get shot by my own gun because I'm going to unload it first" tactic?

    Couldn't be me. Even after it dries out and mold starts growing it will be in far better shape than any vehicle we have...

    Except management's...who forbid theirs be used on enforcement.
