Why, oh why did the stupid city salt the roads yesterday? A friend who lives on Portland Ave said they were PLOWING it also! For what? A DUSTING of snow?! Already there is a haze of salt dust in the air. Yuck

Which brings me to my question: I know I don't want to be riding when the salt can splash up onto my scoot, but is it ok when the pavement is dry, especially if it has been a few days since it was applied. Will that salt dust still be a bad thing?

If they lay down the salt before it snows, it is more effective. It's a bear to get the ice off by thowing salt on top of it.

We used to wear a union on our belt, which was the style at the time.
