Straight salt is all but unheard of here. The climate/weather is such that refreezing is always a problem, and straight salt is just not cost-effective nor efficient in providing traction both for vehicles and pedestrians. And the damage it does to vegetation, clothing, concrete, automobiles, bridge expansion joints etc is a whole other topic for discussion.Originally posted by GeoffDiamond
