I think it rather depends on what's around the roads (or over actually). The main roads will often stay damp and greasy for longer than the minor untreated roads providing they are not under trees or between high hedges. Down my way the marshes are almost assured to be dry by lunchtime providing it hasn't actually rained in the morning. Has the added bonus at this time of year of the hedges and verges being down so the views through the twisty bits can be exploited!
