Yeah, I've seen that brine crap in use out east and heard how nasty it is. Up here, everything with the exception of state roads, is plowed to snow cover only. It's slicker but if you take your time, your gonna do just fine. They dump at intersections only.Honestly, while the salt/sand/gravel aren't good for your car, it's the brine solution that's doing the greatest amount of corrosion. It's also the most efficient and cost-effective method for pre-treating roads, so more an more places are using it. That stuff touches everything on your car and takes a lot to get rid of.
