Problems:
  • More than 116,000 Americans are injured and over 1,300 killed every year on snowy, slushy or icy pavement.
  • Snowstorms cost states as much as $700 million per day in both direct and indirect costs if roads are impassable.
Solutions:
  • Sensible use of salt, which reduces highway crashes 80% and injuries 85%.
  • Proactive snow and ice removal, an investment far less costly than the economic impact of road closures.
