High Water Creates Traffic Headaches

Evansville police remind motorists that left cars in roadways due to high water are responsible for moving them when the water goes down. Cars need to be moved enough to allow traffic to pass through the area. If the car is not obstructing traffic, the police will allow time for owners to retrieve their car. Cars that are obstructing traffic will be towed at the owners expense.

Emergency crews were sent to 39 separate calls related to motorists being impacted on flooded roadways.

There were 12 water rescues, 9 calls to assists motorists who were stranded but out of harms way, and 18 hazard calls for abandoned cars blocking the roadway.

Police expect the afternoon drive home to be impacted by flooded roads.
