Black ice is a type of ice in which the ice is frozen without any air bubbles. This feature of black ice makes it very transparent.
Black ice’s transparency leads to many car accidents because drivers cannot detect that there is ice on the road. Instead of driving cautiously over the black ice, many drivers will drive normally and may lose control of their vehicles in the slick conditions.
