Car owners with no air conditioning are driving their cars into the water to stay cool.
It seems to be a trend on social media right now.
Teenagers are sneaking out with their parents’ cars and driving it off a cliff straight into the water. They are doing this to get more likes on social media.
One man said that he accidentally typed in air conditioning in his GPS and it gave him directions to drive the car into the ocean off the boardwalk.
He said, “It’s okay because my vehicle insurance covers this and plus, it’s a free car wash from mother nature.”
Experts say that if the car is submerged underwater, you can’t just open the windows to get some air, you will get salt water instead.
They are urging car owners with no air conditioning to simply go for a swim or do an ice bath at home.

In her show, participants drive a car into the ocean. Whoever can escape the fastest wins a cash prize. During an interview, She gave us tips on how to survive this scenario.
This is what she had to say,
“Always carry water guns just in case sharks are nearby. They are absolutely terrified of water guns.”
“Instead of air bags, equip your car with a full scuba set. Simply punch the steering wheel and a full scuba suit and tank will come out of the steering wheel.”
“If your car turns into a submarine, then it’s perfectly okay to drive into the ocean. Just make sure you completely fill the inside of your car with ice to stay cool because you will not be able to open the windows underwater.”
“And just remember, you will only have 2-3 minutes to get out of the car”.
