Black Ice Blamed for Crashes
By 250 News
Prince George, B.C. - As the sun sinks and the temperature slips, there is plenty of black ice developing on Prince George area roads.
That has led to a rash of crashes, like the one in the photo at right which is causing a major delay on Foothills Boulevard, north of North Nechako Road. A van has rolled over at that site. No word yet on if anyone was injured.
There has also been a crash on University Way. Emergency responders are still dealing with that one.
RCMP advise all drivers, not to be fooled by the Spring like temperatures enjoyed earlier today, as things are cooling off quickly, and that is helping to make roads slick.

Use the temperature display on your vehicles, if you have one. They sure come in handy in temperatures like we're having.
No way ' ;)
Anyway, I get a chuckle out of the comments here.
Its the Governments fault.
Funny thing about ice.......it's slippery!
After my kids started their driving lessons I couldn't teach them anymore. Those darn head/shoulder checks drove me nuts. They were taught well and I don't worry about their driving but some of the others on the road are darn right scary!
