It hurts just watching!  :o
And it happens just unexpectedly. Was there oil or something on the thick layer of tarmac?

Luckily you only needed a few cigarettes to put your nerves back in order  :)

It was not an oil. Too much bitumen (tar) is used for laying asphalt. When it's hot the road "sweats" with bitumen, heavy trucks spread it on their tires. There is no place not covered with the tar. During rain the road surface becomes like ice.  :-\
