Every year around 900 to 1,300 people die in the USA from driving on icy roads.

Icy roads are dangerous and you should never get out and drive on the icy roads unless absolutely necessary.

Even a small patch of ice can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

So if there is ice in the forecast and the roads are gonna get icy and you're already off the road and at home then stay home unless you absolutely need to drive on the roads.

Driving on the ice makes it even harder to stop the vehicle and it can cause you to spin your vehicle around or slide into oncoming traffic.

The deaths from icy roads can vary each year but between 900 and 1,300 deaths occur due to icy weather.
