New Signs Will Measure Floodwaters

I've seen electronic signs that tell you how fast you're going or how long travel time is for a section of roadway, but this is a new one.

A road in the UK floods frequently, so officials are spending money for signs that alert drivers to the depth of the water; allowing them to make decisions on whether to drive through the flooding.

BBC News England has the story.
