Black Ice

With winter in full swing subfreezing temperatures are becoming normal. It is important to be aware of black ice.  Black ice is a clear layer of ice that forms on sidewalks and streets.  The way it forms makes it very difficult to see and as a result can cause serious problems for pedestrians and motorists alike.  Black ice can reduce traction for tires resulting in skidding and difficulty stopping.  For pedestrians it can lead to falls and potentially serious injury.  Bridges and areas where water drains are very likely to have ice form on them.  Be careful crossing bridges and in crosswalks this season.
