Online PR News – 22-January-2013 –“Resist the temptation to pour hot water over ice to melt it,” is the snow safety advice of Alex Pitt, director of snow-clearing equipment experts Tracmaster. “This is a short-term solution, as once it cools it will freeze over the existing ice making the problem worse. Salt or grit is a better approach.”
