Black Ice: How to Spot This  Winter Driving Danger
Winter brings many dangers for motorists, with one of the most threatening being hard-to-spot black ice.  Black ice gets its name from its ability to blend in with its surroundings.

The prime time for the development of black ice are around dawn and in the late evening, when temperatures are typically the lowest.  

The most common locations for the emergence of black ice are shaded or tree-covered parts of roadway due to the lack of sunlight and bridges, and overpasses because of their ability to freeze quickly.  

Due to the lack of traction a car has on ice, the basic rule for driving on black ice is to stay calm and let the vehicle pass over it.  

For additional information on this dangerous winter road condition, visit AccuWeather or the National Weather Service.
Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks
The Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks report is a resource and idea book intended to help small towns and rural communities support safe, accessible, comfortable, and active travel for people of all ages and abilities.  

It provides a bridge between existing guidance on bicycle and pedestrian design and rural practice, encourages innovation in the development of safe and appealing networks for bicycling and walking in small towns and rural areas, and shows examples of peer communities and project implementation that is appropriate for rural communities.
