Storm Highway High-Definition Video > HD Icy Roads, Black Ice and Snow Accidents, Spinouts and Crashes Stock Footage

The Storm Highway archive of high-definition icy road "caught-on-tape" stock footage is the most extensive and comprehensive of its kind anywhere! Not just accident aftermath is covered - accidents, spinouts, crashes and slide-offs are all caught on camera as they happen. I spend considerable effort documenting this hazard, due to its status as the most dangerous type of weather phenomenon in terms of injuries and lives lost. This collection of footage includes road icing impacts of all types, including black ice from freezing rain and icing from snow, sleet and blowing snow. I am also available for interviews and consulting regarding this little-covered but high-impact weather danger. -Dan

Please note: This is the high-definition footage catalog. All new footage since 2007 has been captured in high definition. For the pre-2007 standard definition footage, see the SD Accidents Caught on Video page.
