Protecting Your Car in the Driveway


As winter approaches, drivers in Edmonton are beginning to prepare for new road hazards such as ice and snow. While preparing for adverse road conditions is important, you should also look into adding ways to increase safety in your driveway. By using an added texture on your driveway, you can reduce the risk of an accident happening so close to home.

Using textures such as sand and salt to increase your driveway safety is a tried and true method. Salt lowers the freezing point of water, which makes ice melt, creating a better walking and driving surface. After the ice is removed, another great option is to add sand to walking surfaces. Sand increases the traction of drivers and pedestrians, allowing for a safe walk to and from the car.

While kitty litter is a common suggestion, our service technicians at West End Nissan advise against its use. Kitty litter has a nasty habit of mixing with slush and adding to your slippery problems!
