Alberta Transportation is sending a video warning to drivers about the dangers of black ice.
The video, which appeared on the Alberta Justice & Solicitor General’s YouTube account Wednesday, shows a vehicle sliding and flipping over a guardrail.
The province hopes the images will encourage drivers to slow down.
They say drivers must understand that roads can look clear but motorists need to be prepared for winter conditions.
