Why is the word "treacherous" only used to describe road conditions?

    I'm getting old (we all are I know) but i've never understood why we whip this word out during cold snaps, before quietly pocketing it for another 5 years till the next one.

    Why can't people be treacherous? Or climbing ladders? Or skydiving?
