More Sustainable Snowfighting Whitepaper
Vehicle collisions on snowy and icy US roads kill 1,300 people each year and injure 116,000.
And research shows those numbers would be far higher without the heroic efforts of winter maintenance teams de-icing our roads and highways. There’s no question: Winter operations save lives. Unfortunately, the safety benefits of today’s standard de-icing practices carry with them significant costs — both literally and in terms of their effects on the environment. But enhancing your road-salting practices with newer processes and tools — including the right telematics system — can have a big impact on your municipality’s bottom line, while lessening your impact on the environment.
This whitepaper will delve into each environmental challenge and offer suggestions on how your winter maintenance program can minimize costs and also protect the planet.
