New Jersey winters bring snow, sleet and freezing rain to our roadways, which can make commuting to work, picking the kids up from school, or simply going shopping a treacherous trip. Another hazardous road condition drivers should pay particular attention to, involves “black ice.” This occurs in very cold temperatures, whereby the ice freezes, transparently, and often hidden from view by motorists and pedestrians that drive and walk across it. Black ice is the cause of many accidents due to its extreme slipperiness. It is vitally important to be extra cautious when driving after a sudden drop in temperatures, especially if you see shiny or wet surfaces during these very cold temperatures.
When driving in wintery conditions, with periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain, be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility. Always use caution, making sure you give yourself plenty of distance between your vehicle and the other vehicles around you. Expect travel difficulties and delays, giving yourself extra time to reach your destination.
