SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - As temperatures begin to take a nose dive with the next blast of Arctic air working its way into the Arklatex, the potential to hit icy roadways heightens with the possibility of precipitation this weekend.
Jason Frazier, a certified driving instructor of Bee Safe Driving School in Shreveport, says it is very important to take your time while driving.
"In any kind of inclement weather, they want to slow down. They want to make sure they leave to get to their destination with plenty of time," says Frazier.
It is very important to be aware of your surroundings, especially in situations where you may be dealing with black ice.
If you hit a patch of ice and begin to slide, Frazier stresses there is one thing you don't want to do.
