"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!

if the ice is transparent but there's no sun is good, cause the snow on the ice rewarm the surface...otherway round, if the ice is transparent but there's sun, ray of lights rewarm the water making the ice getting thinner from below.

Italians tried for the first time in the '90s with the Overland Truck Expedition to go from Rome to New York with 4 trucks passing from the frozen Bering Strait in winter. Unfortunately, that year the strait wasn't completely frozen so they had to disassemble the trucks, put on a plane and go to Alaska by air.

In the time of the road construction (middle of January) the avarage temperature in the city of Yellowknife, wherefrom starts the ice road, is -30.9°C... this means for example if in Yellowknife the temperature is -30°C on the ice road could be -35°C+ with a perceived temperature of -40°C+
