    Calcium works better anyways. At least for dust control...

    Applications every third day whether it needs it or not? Something wrong going on up there.

    When it snows enough, freezing rain or better yet during slippery conditions we salt as needed.

    wait just a minute, you came here asking if you thought it was ethical.
    If it was published on the front page of a new paper, how do you think it would go over?

    Dry = safe lot. The dry safe lot is the objective.

    Doesn't take much to understand that does it?

    It's very simple...apply salt when it's slippery or very likely to be...not just cuz.

    It would be nice to not have to get up at 2am to check conditions because you know you salted earlier that day.

    I just thought of that...wonder if I can start being "ethical" and just salt every 3 days no matter what so I can get more sleep.
