South Dakota Highway Patrol reminds motorists not to drive through water crossing a road. There has been numerous reports of vehicles stalling out while attempting to cross roads with running water. Even if your vehicle has the ground clearance to clear the water hazard, the water could be hiding a washed out road and you could drive into a large hole.
