I got my drivers permit exactly 5 months ago to the day. In the 5 months of driving, Ive just experienced my first "black ice" skid. It lasted probably half a second (Thank God). Have you encountered black ice?

I know "black ice" is a relatively accepted term, but I don't really understand it. Ice is ice. If the road is wet, and the temperature of the road is below freezing, it's possible that the road has ice. The "black" part just describes that it's on a black road...because roads are black.

So, instead of thinking black ice is some mystics magical thing, I like to use other signs to determine road condition when driving.

Mine was the day after I got my license and the first day I was allowed to drive anywhere by myself.

I can't say that I have. The coldest it really ever gets here is mid 40s, at night in the winter.

Black Ice is basically ice on a road that's very hard to see. Really dangerous stuff if you're going fast.

Black ice in the Chicagoland area is terrible. I was in the car with my friend the other day and we almost slipped off the road because of it.

I screwed up my car once due to black ice. I went for a 90 degree left turn. Black ice decided I only needed to go 45 degrees.

Oh yes. It exists. I live in IL. It is more common in Russia though, I think. There is a word for it. Гололедица (gololeditsa). Some people will say черный гололедица (cheernyy gololeditsa). It seems to translate to English as "sleet" or "black sleet" but I know the meaning of the word sleet in English and that's not a good translation.
Some say the direct translation черный лед (cheernyy led) or black ice. Both are correct.
I have seen some scary accident videos on black ice. I can't imagine driving on it.
Usually that is when you hear other words like "охуеть!" (ahooiet) but I will leave that meaning to your imagination. 😂😂😈😈

4 wheel brakes are more important then 4 wheel drive. Way more important.
