A slippery street with black ice in Baku

Out of control bus, cars and truck negotiating a frozen street in Azerbaijan’s capital Baku on 2016, January 26th. The black ice covered the road making vehicles skim.

Icy road in Baku

The cars sliding on this icy street caused serious trouble for drivers. A cold snap has left car breaks useless and wheels spinning as drivers try to navigate the junction. Luckily, no one was injured in the drift session where cars and buses, sliding and skidding on a thick layer of ice and narrowly, tried to avoiding collisions. Azerbaijan is not used to a lot of ice and neither cars nor roads are widely prepared to deal with it.
