Emergency: How to Deal with Black Ice on the Road

While exiting the freeway, your car hits a patch of ice and suddenly you’re sliding off the ramp. Find out how to stop the slide and get home safe.

Winter weather can bring with it dangerous driving conditions, including ice. Conditions can be especially hazardous on ramps, bridges and overpasses, which tend to freeze first.

Stay safe when traveling on slippery sections of roadway by knowing how to drive safely on ice, and by knowing how to correct your car if you lose control.

Watch your speed

Maintain control of your vehicle on icy roads by matching your speed to the road conditions. Take extra precaution on curves and turns by slowing down in advance.

Correct your car properly

To bring a sliding car under control, follow this advice from the National Safety Council. In addition, remove your foot from both the accelerator and brake pedals, unless your vehicle has an antilock braking system (ABS). In that case, depress the brake pedal as hard as possible until the vehicle stops moving. Consult your owner’s manual for information about the type of brakes in your vehicle. In vehicles with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), the car applies the ABS automatically. Again, check your owner’s manual for more details.

Meanwhile, turn the steering wheel in the direction you want the front wheels to go, and continue steering and counter-steering.
