Reminder To Wash Your Car After Roads Have Been Treated For Ice

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- After driving around town these past few days you may have noticed your car has salt sticking to it.

It's because of the salt the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet uses to treat the roads to keep you safe during severe winter weather.

Can the salt be harmful to your car? That's what we asked.

"It's probably a good idea to go ahead and wash your car not long after an event where we've had to treat the roads. Salt and Calcium are a natural process for corrosion. So it's probably a good idea to go ahead and wash your vehicle when you can," says Wes Watt with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

Chances are we haven't seen the last of salt on the roads this season.
