What are the benefits?

Studies have shown that anti-icing will achieve the same level of service on a road or highway using 1/4 to 1/5 the amount of salt used in de-icing. Typically, anti-icing is preformed using trucks carrying large tanks, which have pumps to spray the brine onto the pavement surfaces. In many places, lines or stripes of brine can be seen on a road before a given event.
