Look closely at the finer detail.
It is only Toyota propaganda.
If you look closely at the pictures, apart from the current you will see just the tops of the white posts. Majority of white posts are about 1 metre high. According to the photographer and that graph, the water is supposed to be 2 metres deep at the time the tojo was crossing.
The speed limit signs are generaly 2.4-2.6 metres high.
A daihatsu could have crossed that.

I rest my case, except to say he was a bloody idiot if the current was at that speed with a kid inside.

Nugget,

Your attention to detail is slightly lacking :)

"According to the photographer and that graph, the water is supposed to be 2 metres deep at the time the tojo was crossing."

Where exactly is this stated??

The graph shows the river peaked at about 7.5m which is approximately 6.5m above the normal river height.
It is also stated that the bridge is about 6-7m above normal water level of the river which means that the water would have only been about 0.5m deep by this reckoning.
From your powers of deduction you stated that the white guide posts are about 1m high and therefore allowing the photographer some error then the water is about 1m deep. As you can just see the tops of the guide posts.

I would love to see a diahatsu cross that ;))

I rest my case as well

Cheers Kev

I couldn't believe he attempted it - then to find out he had his kid with him???? He should have been reported. Fair enough he go through but what if he hadn't.

If he hadn't made it through then the Emergency services (both professional and voluntary) would have been called to recover the bodies as well as the vehicle and boat for the Coroner.

I agree he should be charged for endangering life as well as failing to heed a road closed sign.

If that doesn't fall under the definition of reckless driving then what does.
