I just read the article about using brine solution to pretreat roads, “Central Maine towns struggle with road salt addiction,” Feb. 16.

The article noted that the town of Belgrade had its contractor, the Warren Brothers, use this method. If this method is being used on Point Road, I’d say it is a dismal failure. I have never seen Point Road so snowy and icy as it has been this year.

We have to creep across it after a storm. Give it a couple of good sunny days then parts of it won’t be as slippery. I, for one, am not impressed with this “new method.”
