    The road condition is very icy and hazardous.

    1) The road condition is very icy and hazardous. Please drive safely when the road is in icy condition.
    2) Snow will turn into ice when they have been compressed by getting rolled over by car or by being stepped.
    3) The hazardous road condition has affected my speed in delivering pizza.
    4) The dangerous road condition has slowed down/hamper my delivery of pizza because I have to drive slower.


    Are the above sentences correct? Hope somebody can help me out. :)

    Re: The road condition is very icy and hazardous.

    Should I say the road is in hazardous/icy/slippery condition or should I say, the condition of the road is hazardous/icy/slippery?

    * I am not sure how to form a correct sentence.

    Re: The road condition is very icy and hazardous.

    Most commonly you hear about "icy/hazardous road conditions"

    E.g. "Drivers on the M26 are warned to take particular care due to icy road conditions."

    2) Snow will turn into ice when they have it has been compressed by getting rolled over by cars or by being stepped on. While it may be true that repeated stepping on snow will turn the snow into ice, it would take many people a long time to affect a highway.
    3) The hazardous road conditions has affected my speed in delivering pizza.
    4) The dangerous road conditions has slowed down/hampered my delivery of pizza because I have to drive slower.


    Are the above sentences correct? Hope somebody can help me out. ​"can" here indicates an ability. This sentence should be written - I hope that someone will help me:)
    I use "conditions" because a the surface of a road can change during winter. One part can be dry while another part can be icy or have what is called black ice on it. One can use the article "the" here, but it is not necessary - the road conditions = road conditions.
