Tar-like Substance in Winter Road Treatment

Our county road commission has ďimprovedĒ its road treatment solution this winter by adding a substance that sticks to vehicles like tar in the summertime. It ends up everywhere road spray would permeate.

Fortunately, CarPro Tar-X removes it easily. Wash the vehicle, spray Tar-X, wipe off after a couple minutes, re-spray the vehicle, and dry. The downside is, Iím disinclined to do this every time I wash my X5 (at least weekly); but at least itís Sapphire Black (so the tiny tar spots donít show).

Has anyone else experienced this road treatment solution?

Brine (sodium Chloride) solution with sugar beet emulsion added probably. They use it here in Southern Ontario as well. Lowers the effective working temp of the salt brine. Also lowers the corrosive properties of the brine. PIA to keep vehicle clean.
