The Walser Automotive Group is offering its expertise to help keep drivers safe on the road throughout the rest of the winter season.
One of these tips deals with the materials used to gain traction. Most drivers will either use salt or sand. The advantage of salt is that it helps melt snow. Unfortunately, it can only do so to a certain point. Below certain temperatures, it is ineffective.
Sand cannot be used to melt snow. However, it is able to provide traction regardless of the temperature.
When making a decision about whether to use salt or sand, consider the weather conditions around the roads you will be driving on.
