Winter Driving: Salt Caution

It is important to be aware that the effectiveness of road salt diminishes as the temperature falls.  The lower the temperature the less effective the salt becomes. Road salts effectiveness is also reduced during freezing rain, because it is washed off the pavement by traffic as the rain continues falling and freezing on impact.  In any weather when salt is spread, drive as if there was no salt at all.  Reduce your speed and allow plenty of space between your vehicle and the one in front of you.
