Black ice driving tips

By amber

Several of our employees noticed black ice this morning that has caused several accidents already.

According to AccuWeather.com, "Black ice forms when the air is at 32 degrees or below at the surface and rain is falling. The ground temperature causes the precipitation to freeze upon impact, thus creating ice."

Black ice blends in with its surroundings, making it very difficult to spot. 

Tips to Stay Safe While Driving on Black Ice:
1. Do not hit the brakes, instead keep your steering wheel steady.
2. Lift your foot off the accelerator.
3. Do not overcorrect your steering if you feel your car sliding.
