Black ice can become a headache for drivers, who have never driven on it.
Black ice forms when water freezes on the road or pavement. You can not see the ice, but you can see the road or pavement. Everything looks normal except when your tires hit the ice. Your tires looses their traction to the road and you end up sliding out of control.
One way to prevent this sliding, is that, as soon as you feel you do not have control of the car, take your foot of the gas pedal. Be sure, what ever you do, not to hit the breaks because it would increase your sliding. Let the forward motion of the car take you forward and off the ice. As soon as you feel control, slightly add the gas.
If you hit the gas pedal hard, your tires will start spinning, or your car will slide to the side of the road, or off the road. The worst thing that you can do, when driving on black ice, is to tail-gate, following to close to the car in front of you, or panic. Black ice, usually, forms when water hits the road in temperature below freezing, such as, in tule fog, in snow storms, in snow country, or when the rain freezes on the road, or on the pavement after storms.
Just remember, not to panic when you hit black ice or when you drive in it.
