Black ice in the Louisville area is a secret nemesis. It is that thin, almost unnoticeable sheet of ice that forms when cold weather meets wet weather. Even when the temperature is above freezing black ice can form. The air suddenly warms after a prolonged warm spell, but the surface of the road is well below the freezing mark.
If you see black ice on the roadway as you are approaching you will probably run into it. Your first reaction as a driver should be to remain calm. DO NOT hit the brakes! That means don’t even tap them. Allow your vehicle to pass over the ice, and naturally try to reduce your speed before you hit the ice itself.
Even the most cautious among us may have a black ice related accident this winter. If it requires auto body repair in the Louisville area, we understand.
