It means an Slippery road surface is ahead.

Well the rule of thumb is to be prepared for a road surface more slippery than normal, steering and braking could be affected adversely.

The "Slippery road" is a red triangle warning sign so take notice of the warning and adjust your driving accordingly.

The Slippery Road Warning Road Sign

Why is the "slippery road" sign a red triangle warning sign?

You will be going over a road surface that can often be more slippery than normal or is often very slippery. Why would the road be more slippery? It may be an area prone to more water on the road than normal and "aquaplaining", or the road may be smooth and you may have less grip than normal, or the road surface could be loose such as a gravel surface or prone to slippery mud perhaps left by farm vehicles using the road.

Whatever the potential cause of the slippery road you are being warned to slow down, be extra observant and take extra care.

Hence it is a "warning sign" not a general information sign!

Care and extra observation required.
