Every year, roadway flooding results in death and serious injury. Just a few inches of water on a road can be dangerous, and six inches is all it takes to reach the bottom of most cars and cause a loss of control.
The costs of infrastructure damage and demands on first responders can also put on a serious strain on communities.
Proactive, well-placed safety solutions can mitigate these dangers and protect lives.
High water events can decimate budgets. In 2020, roadway floods in Maryland alone caused over $15 million in economic losses.
