it's 100% what they put on the roads here. if you don't drive your car in the winter it's totally fine. the exception would be if you live literally RIGHT on the water.

the state of CT is possibly getting sued by several large trucking companies due to the corrosive nature of the brining solution that they use on the roads here.

The chemicals will eat through the paint yes, but the runaway rust is a cause of the climate.

Here in a dry climate, you can leave metal exposed or hit it with harsh chemicals for a very long time before it will rust like it will down there.
