ATLANTA — As the sun begins to go down, much of the snow and ice will remain on roads in Georgia.
Many drivers in the south are not used to driving on icy roads, so here is some advice on how to deal with black ice:
- Avoid braking and instead ease off of the accelerator and steer in the direction you want the front of your car to go in. Don't overcorrect if your vehicle starts to slide. If you have antilock brakes, don't pump your brakes.
- If you're driving a vehicle without antilock brakes, keep your heel on the floor and use firm pressure on the brake.
