Black ice is kind of a rare situation
I once read that 31 and 33 degrees is more dangerous than 32 degrees in wet situations….don't know why????
I had to make a 40 minute round trip, not knowing there was a major black ice event going on. I MADE IT HOME 6 HOURS LATER While parked in a parking lot with emergency brake on, and trannny in park…the wind blew…My pickup truck slid sideways about ten feet. On the way home, I saw cars off the road, and it was a straight stretch of road. Buses parked on the side of the road, and I imagine the bus drivers just saying a big NOPE!
Another time I was warned of wide spread black ice, and was told to stay put. After the salt trucks did their magic, I had zero problems, until I set foot on my unsalted driveway. THINK…THE AGONY OF DEFEAT……THEN picture me doing the very best Michael Jackson moonwalk impersonation, while trying to make it to the house.
AVOID BLACK ICE . It could be that dealing with black ice situations is a bit easier in northern regions where the DOT has more trucks, salt , and manpower to deal with it
