Road Salt may damage traffic infrastructures

According to Bridgestone Tire, road salt not only can rust your car, it can rust the road infrastructure. A well maintained roadway, with a full and sealed layer of asphalt, is your best defense against the possible damage of road salt.

“Automobile owners aren’t the only ones who need to worry about corrosion. ┬áRoad salt can also damage bridges, parking garages, railroads, and other public transportation infrastructures. This corrosion damage is estimated to cost the highway and automobile industries $3.5 to $7 billion per year in the U.S.”[1]
