Why can't you wind the window down as soon as you hit the water and swim out through there?

I was thinking could you move to the back seat and wait for the pressure in the front to equalize before diving under and getting out?

I need a math genius. If a car is floating down a river that is flowing 7mph, or 3.3 meters per second, and the car weighs 3400 lbs, and the wind is blowing 10km or 2.7 meters per second with the current, will the car float down river 6 meters per second?

Unroll the windows - even power windows work underwater supposedly. I believe you can also kick the back window out, but might be hard underwater - you can't kick side windows out, you'd need a glass breaker to break them, or unroll.

Tip if you drive your car into the water do not try to open the door before the water is completely submerged instead break the window at the corners of it then climb out if there are children with you let them get out first......or you can wait till the car is completely under water then try opening the door then swim to the surface

This is a very misleading video. Everyone thinks you should wait and let the car fill up, firefighters say this is a horrible misconception. Get out as fast as you can, they say your in a tomb, and the longer you wait, the more likely you won't get out alive. Best advice, buy a windshield breaker, almost all have a seat belt cutter and they cost $3.00 on ebay.

the back of the car has the weakest amount of pressure so you should of tried the back doors or tried to break the back window

If you were absolutely beefed up surely you could open the door though? I know it would be really hard but is it feasible for a human to open the door?

Couldn't he just open the door at at 0:50 when the water is only partial way up to the door and up to his feet inside. That would be the first thing I would do if I ever drove a car into a lake or saw a pool of water near my feet. I wouldn't wait for the water to go up to the top of my window and then think hey maybe I should get out now since the car is filling up with water.

Your supposed to roll down the window ASAP as soon as that car hits the water. Doesn't matter whether its an automatic window or a manual one. All you need is to get it down enough to get your body out. Your backup options are a window glass breaker tool or the headrest of your seats if that fails, but you should be looking at option 1 first. 1. As soon as the hood touches the water be lowering your window already, if it's automatic you don't have long before the water messes it up so don't panic just lower the damn window 2. Take your seatbelt off ONLY AFTER you hit the water. If you do it while your still airborne you might get slammed into the wheel or front window and pass out or die on impact. Wait till you start sinking to take off the seatbelt. 3. If you window messes up use a glass breaker tool 4. If that fails try to use the headrests, however be aware that many headrests nowadays cant be removed. 5. If you don't have a glass breaker, and the headrest cant be removed. Your going to have to wait for the pressure to equalize. Stay calm take deep breaths. Your car will probably be 30-40 feet deep by the time it equalizes that means you will have to hold your breath in the water at least 30-45 seconds while swimming to get to the top most likely.

Opening the window while sinking and then force out through the window and the flowing water. On the doors pressure will apply and won't allow ocupants to open the doors. So window is the only option
