How road salt is Bad Road salt is bad, it can hurt animals, humans, and the environment . I was in a car accident because there was to much road salt on the road. • I yyduuiduiu8ik
What can road salt do? When road salt splashes into the bushes or trees, it drips down into the roots. It burns the tops of tender new plants. It also huts aquatic animals. When cars drive by the road salt drains into the lakes.
Facts!! • Both plants and animals are sensitive to road salt in different degreases. • Take the egg and larval stages of many aquatic animals for instance. Even the smallest increase of road salt can kill them. • Is there a solution? We know that there are other chemicals that can melt ice just as well as road salt does. However, these chemicals are more expensive. Witch one would YOU choose?
