    After all that he actually lost time due to having to go back to recover the car.

    To be fair he did come back to help:thumb: - He could have driven on. The truck obviously submerged the bridge more than the lighter cars.:doh: The white Lada?? appeared to have stopped/ flooded before the lorry came along and was the reason the grey car stopped on a relatively high floating section of the bridge. :( To be honest if I was a lorry driver crossing that bridge with a heavy vehicle I would be very reluctant to stop anywhere- for anyone!! :devil: The secret being to keep moving if at all possible. Its a bit like driving snow on steep hills maintaining momentum is the secret -----stop at your peril.:fail

    Good point grober. By the time the pontoons have had time to sink, you've moved on.
