    Why does NYS have to be over the top when it comes to salt usage per mile? Other northern states do a very acceptable job keeping roads safe (a necessity for sure) at far less cost and destruction. Make reduction in road salt use per mile a part of the performance plan of highway superintendents at all levels of government in this state. Only then will a reduction in the profligate use of road salt become likely.

    If the roads are not bare after a snow storm , the public complains of un-safe roads. The DOT reacts too people complaining and applies even more road salt. The state is very nervous about law suited. The driving public needs to slow down in winter weather and the DOT needs to use less salt.
