‘lectric Lagoon

September 30, 2007

If you have electric locks, windows and other accessories in your car, take extra precautions when traveling near water. As scientists will point out, water can cause a short in electrical systems. Be even more vigilant if you’re near a body of water like a pond or lake. For you could veer into that larger body of water when adjusting the radio or looking at yourself in the rearview mirror and then sink like a stone to the bottom when you can’t open the doors or windows in a timely manner.
