The National Weather Service urges exercising caution while driving, as icy roadways are hard to spot during the day and are near impossible to see at night.

“Monitor the magic number. If it goes below 32, stay home,” said Richard Standifer, a public information officer with the Texas Department of Public Safety

But if you’re on the road, DPS says the first thing you should do is drive slow and keep your distance. At least five car lengths of space. If you hit a patch of ice or black ice, don’t panic. Don't hit the breaks. Once you get past the ice, your vehicle will regain traction.

If you find yourself in an accident, call for help and stay in your vehicle.
