The risk of black ice on the road

Posted on April 28, 2015 2:16 pm under Car Accidents

Driving during icy weather heightens the risk of car accidents. A particular danger involves encounters with hard-to-spot black ice on the road. Black ice can be very difficult to detect because it is transparent and resembles the color of the pavement. When passing through black ice at higher speed, cars might lose their traction and experience injurious accidents.

However, driving at an increased speed is not the only cause of black ice-related road incidents. Defectively designed and manufactured tires, for instance, may also greatly increase the risk of an accident in adverse conditions. In some instances, poorly-designed and maintained public roads can also cause cars to skid during icy conditions.
