Roadside puddle slush refrozen during the night.

Slush can be a problem on an aircraft runway since the effect of excess slush acting on the aircraft's wheels can have a resisting effect during take off, which can cause an accident such as the Munich air disaster. Slush on roads can also increase the braking distances for cars and trucks, increasing the possibility of rear end crashes and other accidents.

Slush refreezing in overnight frost can turn to dangerous slippery ice underfoot.
