They most likely did it as a preemptive measure because the temperature is supposed to dip down to around -4 tonight (about -11 with the wind chill).

Not that I agree with it, it think it's a stupid thing to do seeing as it's not calling for any precipitation, but that was most likely their reasoning for doing it.

No doubt they're protecting themselves against liability claims.

Disscontinue that crap, and spend the money on winter tires and mandatory winter driving courses.

Oh but wait.. That will never happen because no private sector company will profit from it....

I just came across this thread today and read that last article on brine salt. I don't know where they get there info from but it is not made from oil. I work for the city of Burlington and make brine in the winter for the roads. It's just a water and salt mixture that's it no oil. Personalty I don't think they should use anything on the roads but there are to many stupid drivers out there, and when they run into a problem the city is the first to get sued.
