    I wouldn't do it, but the locals might know this crossing well and do this sort of thing all the time, so I'm undecided.

    ...Not something I'd do. I like my car as a car, not a boat. But each to their own. LOL.

    I too have crossed when necessary and if I 'know' the crossing. Thing is, though, if you do come a gutser, well then others have to put themselves at risk to rescue you. Discretion really is the better part of valor.....its a fine line between hero and zero.

    It did say it was a government car, those type of vehicles can go to the moon and back.

    Just looking at the video it seems pretty stupid, but having said that the video doesn't nearly the whole story. Maybe they do this everyday of the week and twice on Sundays so its no big deal for them, or maybe it was a life and death situation for them to be on the other side of the river.

    Or maybe cause it was someone else's car they just didn't give a ****

    Cheers Andrew
    Why would I buy something for $10 when I can make it for $20
