1 Undo The Seatbelt

Undo the seat belt as fast as possible. In fact as soon as you realise your car is in water, go for the seatbelt first. NOT THE WINDOW. If water gets to the seatbelt before you do then it’s a dicey situation because it could get jammed. If you can brace yourself from the impact and undo the seatbelt immediately after hitting water, that would be ideal.
