Black Ice is Dangerous. Black ice can form anywhere when temperatures fall below freezing. Low lying and shady areas absent of sunlight may contain black ice.

Emergency Car-Care Kit. Always carry emergency kits that include jumper cables, flares, a blanket, and extra pair of gloves, socks and non-perishable food.

Keep Your Distance. Safe is always better than sorry. Clean your headlights and once on the road, leave enough distance between cars to stop and react. When necessary, break gently.

Slow Your Roll. With ice and snow, take it slow! Make sure you have a full tank of gas, slow down, wear a seat belt and avoid using cruise control in bad weather conditions.

Avoid Passing. Don’t pass other vehicles including any spreader trucks in operation. This may not only cause vehicle damage but helps you avoid traveling on an untreated roadway that is unsafe for travel.

Pay Attention. Georgia state law prohibits drivers from using electronic devices to write, send, or read text data while driving. Driving distracted under icy road conditions is dangerous and potentially fatal.
