Why Black Ice Is Dangerous And What You Can Do About It?

tips for walking on black ice

Walking on clear ice or black ice is risky. Black ice or clear ice is a thin layer of ice caused by refreezing of melted snow. It is transparent and appears clear to the eye, and hence we cannot differentiate between a regular road or the one that has a black ice layer on it. It makes it difficult for pedestrians to walk, and there is a chance they might slip and injure themselves. Moreover, it is difficult to get rid of black ice with salt and ice melt. 

Let’s discuss some tips for walking on ice and how to prevent yourself from tripping on black ice.
