Every year it's the same. As we enter early spring, we are also warned to be prepared for storm season. Storm season in Australia it seems is obligatory, mandatory, written in the diary in ink; it is unavoidable. And it's already started.

Before I get to that, I'm going to talk about the hidden dangers on the UK's roads that most Australians have probably never heard about. It's called black ice. Over to Wikipedia to explain black ice: "Black ice, sometimes called clear ice, refers to a thin coating of glazed ice on a surface. While not [...]
