will they be in deeper water with insurance company claims? :whistling:
I'd imagine that they will argue that you foolhardedly drove into the problem. Here is Direct Line on the issue:

My ex did this a few months back and yes they paid out. You could argue that it only looked like a puddle. To be fair he did think it was a puddle as there wasn't any floods around. I suppose it depends on the insurance company
I guess they could get you for stupidity as you shoulnd drive through a puddle that you cant tell how deep it is!!

but no insurance pays out for "acts of god" i guess they could file it under that too

tho ive always wondered what their stance is if you dont beleive in god!!! :thumbsup:
