Why doesn't the city put sand down at the intersections after a storm?


"Rather than sand, the city uses a product called ice melt that is as effective. It has some grit for traction and melts the ice when the temperature is zero or above. No product is effective at melting ice at the temperatures we had last night and today. Sand also causes maintenance issues while adding to subsequent cleanup efforts."
