4 Em_Adespoton Because the roads get salted. These days, a brine mixture is used that leaves the roads wet with a brine that freezes at around -40. Previously, crystallized salt was used; it did pretty much the same thing, but would get kicked to the side of the road instead of adhering to the surface. You get ice in areas that haven't been adequately salted, and black ice where the ice has formed as a single crystal over the asphalt.
3 Phage0070 The roads you are driving on have likely been treated with a deicing chemical which will lower the freezing temperature of the solution considerably. Also the ground tends to have a much more stable temperature than the air which means that even if the outside temperature suddenly drops the ground can remain warmer for quite a while.
