How Rock Salt & Sand Can Potentially Save Your Life This Winter

One of the most hazardous times of the year is the winter season. Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that every year there are slightly over 30,000 fatal automobile accidents in America.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that about one million Americans sustain slip and fall injuries in the winter and of them about 17,000 are fatal. The snow and ice that comes every winter is no joke, taking every step possible to reduce the chances of injury is just smart. Sodium chloride rock salt and sand are two items that you simply should never go without in the winter. The weight of them in the rear of your vehicle helps give traction, the salt eats ice and snow, and a good layer of sand makes sure that the resulting surface is nice and gritty even if it freezes.

All of us here at Fred Martin of Youngstown wish you a happy Holiday season and remember to drive safely.
