DESPITE the Gympie police and emergency services' constant warnings, some residents still decided to try and brave floodwater at the weekend.
Some even thought it would be a good idea to walk through water.
In fact, two Gympie teenagers attempted to walk across Normanby Bridge on Sunday.
The 15-year-old and 17-year-old decided to cross the bridge when the Mary River was at a height of 16.3m.
A Facebook post suggested the boys were going to Hungry Jacks and one boy made it across but the other turned back.
Gympie crime prevention officer Luke Gould said police were still investigating the incident.
He also said the boys were lucky they were not swept away by the powerful water.
"It (water) might look fine but you're not aware of the condition underfoot; it's highly dangerous," Constable Gould said.
That was just one of the weekend rescues.
Two young girls became trapped when the Holden Commodore they were travelling in entered 1m-deep floodwater on Power Rd, Southside.
A bystander went out into the flood and helped the male driver push the car back on to dry ground.
A swift water rescue team took a boat across the 60-metre section of flooded road and picked up the two girls, bringing them back to safety.
On the same day a car became submerged in floodwater on Mary Valley Rd.
Luckily the occupant was saved by a kayaker, who was able to rescue the man quickly.
Two drink drivers were also caught during the wet weather.
A 19-year-old man was allegedly caught on Friday night with blood alcohol reading of 0.137%.
A second person, a 24-year-old man, allegedly blew 0.09% on Saturday night.
Across the weekend, 16 drivers were issued with tickets for disobeying no-entry signs.
Officer Gould said it was frustrating when people continued to put lives at risk.
"They (drivers) seem to think rules don't apply (during floods)," he said.
"Take notice of the signs and remember road rules still apply."
