In Wisconsin, where there is snow on the roads there is often salt.
But a major concern for drivers is the potential damage salt can do to vehicles.
Vilas County resident Teresa Schmidt submitted a Curious North question voicing her concerns.
“What’s going on with the brine on the roads?” Schmidt asked. “Is it really more of a problem than the salt they used to use? Is it saving money for our counties at the expense of all of our residents having to buy new vehicles too soon? What’s going on there?”
