With some of the snows we had this winter, the city/county authorities used sand instead of salt solutions because the temperatures were too cold for the salt to work well.
At least that is the reason they gave.
All I know is that at almost every corner or intersection there is a buildup of sand. And we know how dangerous that can be to 2 wheeled riders.
I'm here to remind you that it is not just the wheels of your vehicle that you need to worry about.
But remember that when you stop at a light or stop sign, what do you do?
You put a foot down, don't you.
Make sure that foot doesn't end up on a pile of sand! OK?
Ride Safe and Carpe Diem , my good friends.
