I have learned that you have to take short but quick steps over the ice. The most important thing is to move quickly, not look up and not stop. This is difficult if you need to cross the road and want to know if cars are coming. This morning I walked from the kindergarten to a busy bus stop where you never have to wait long for a bus or trolley bus. It took 15 minutes and the whole way was icy. Some places had been dusted with gravel but mostly it was lumpy, wet ice.
