On both sides of the road,  there are special panels, which will tell you if the road is passable or not. And yet every year many adventurous travelers get trapped in the rapidly rising waters as the tide comes in. For those caught between the tides, elevated rescue towers are located all along the Passage du Gois. A person can climb these towers and wait until they are rescued or until the tide goes down again.
