Two vehicles - thought to be a Mercedes C class coupe and a Nissan Qashqai - and each worth £10,000 have been spotted abandoned along the flooded A1101 at Welney.
Parish councillor Ken Goodger says warning signs failed and barriers were not erected on the A1101 as Welney Wash road flooded again at the weekend.
Police issued a warning to motorists about driving to weather conditions after a car crashed into a tree on the outskirts of March.
Only the hardiest - arguably most foolish - motorists were still attempting to cross Wash Road, Welney, as the water level rises.

A weather warning is in place for Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire on Saturday, with high winds forecast.
