Your Vehicle Can Stay On The Road Using Salt And Sand And Occasionally Kitty Litter

Salt, sand and kitty litter have one thing in common which is that they can all be used to provide traction to slippery surfaces. It's salt that gives surfaces the strongest traction, but sand can also be used to provide good grip. Salt is a little more expensive and vehicle owners don't always like it because it can cause rust if it gets under the vehicle too much. Sand can be a little dirty, but it's usually a little less expensive. Kitty litter is used for emergency situations.

Why You Should Not Cover Your Driveway With Kitty Litter

Kitty litter is alright to put in your trunk and get out when you need to quickly get your tires turning. But it's not good to use the same way as sand and salt because it can absorb water and create an even more slippery surface.

In addition to covering your driveway with gripping substances, you should also have our dealership get your vehicle ready to handle the icy conditions. All you have to do is just give Thompson Mazda a call, and we'll set up a time for you to bring your vehicle to our Baltimore location.
