Facts!

Why do workers spray liquid onto the roadways before a big storm arrives? It may seem dangerous to add liquid to a road that might freeze, but that liquid can be your best friend when winter driving conditions are at their worst. That liquid solution can prevent snow from sticking to the road and prevent frost or black ice. It's one of the newest weapons against icy roads. Thanks to that liquid solution, winter driving can be a safer experience.

How does it work?

The liquid solution works like anti-freeze by lowering the freezing temperature of water and preventing ice from forming a strong bond to the road. It helps keep roads from becoming slick, improves safety and reduces accidents.

What should I do if I drive on roads where this liquid solution is used?

Wash your vehicle on a regular basis during all seasons! This liquid solution (along with slush, rain and dirt from the roads) can splash onto your vehicle year round and build up after time, leaving a filmy road residue and leading to vehicle corrosion. Make vehicle washing part of your regular maintenance routine, and you will help keep residue from the road chemicals off your vehicle.
