How Salt & Sand Might Save Your Life This Winter
Every year the number of people that slip and fall on the ice might surprise you. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that each year about one million Americans slip and fall every year and of those who fall, about 17,000 of them will result in a fatal injury. Keeping two items handy can help prevent a serious fall this winter; sodium chloride rock salt and sand.
Sodium chloride works extremely efficiently to eat away the ice and snow, the only drawback to this is that the salt will leave behind a nice puddle to deal with. Leaving it as it is will result in it just refreezing so applying a healthy layer of sand to the mix will help ensure you have a gritty surface all winter.
All of us here at Don Franklin Family of Dealerships wish everyone a happy Holiday season and remember to drive safely all throughout the year.
