IN COLD,ICY AND SLIPPERY CONDITIONS
An icy road at -1 has more moisture in the ice, meaning that their will be more water in the icy mixture keeping it on the road. More water=more ice. When the temperature drops further it reacts by extracting the moisture, condensing the crystals in the ice. It acts almost like a drying effect on the roads. There will still be ice and it will be dangerous. However with all this said, it just depends on how much precipitation is involved with the road. A road that hasn't been wet (snow or freezing rain) for days is much safer than a freshly covered one. That is the bottom line. Look out for wind, curves and animals. Slow down.
