What to Do If You Skid on Black Ice

On the roads, invisible black ice can surprise motorists and make them lose control of their car. What are the behaviours to adopt if you find yourself in this situation?

Keep your cool

If you panic, you risk losing control of your car and having an accident. So try to stay calm and above all, keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.

Focus on the road

By slipping on the ice, you can go from one side of the road to the other and feel that you are losing control. To help stabilize yourself, focus on where you want to bring your car on the road.

Keep your feet off your pedals

If you decide to brake, your vehicle will surely fail and you risk the same thing by speeding up. Keep your speed steady, and concentrate on stabilizing your vehicle.
