DOT Must Improve Road De-Icing

December 21, 2015

DOT has released the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering (CASE) study on the corrosive effects of winter chemical road treatments. We have all either experienced, or heard stories of, increased corrosion damage to our cars and trucks.

The basic finding: wash your car regularly. I'm not satisfied with this study and I will work with my colleagues in the legislature to explore the addition of corrosion inhibitors to the DOT winter de-icing program.
