Online PR News – 22-January-2013 – West Sussex, United Kingdom – “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.”

As snow has hit Britain hard causing disruption to schools, business and travel, costing the U.K. economy £500m per day, West Sussex based Tracmaster established for 25 years, is offering advice and equipment for safe snow and ice clearance.
