Ice can quickly form on a road and sidewalk, when there is rain which quickly freezes on contact with the surface.   It is called “black ice” because you cannot see the ice on the surface, as the ice is clear.  All you see is the surface.   On a road, you see the black surface, of a road, but no ice.

Black ice is extremely dangerous because your car can spin out of control, or you can fall, on a surface which is covered with ice, which you don’t see.

Be particularly careful in situations in which there is rain and the temperature is close to freezing.   The rain may freeze on contact with the ground and cause the black ice.

Also, you can have melting snow, due to a rising temperature.  When the temperature drops, ice can form, causing black ice.

Have a safe winter.

If you have been injured because of an accident from ice or snow, please feel free to call Attorney Robert M. Singer.
