Works great and costs less than $10. When you get to work, just take off the top outer layer and you're good to go.
Something tells me when you have a ton of rock salt on the roads constanty melting the snow,so that there's a good suppy of water on the edge of the roads, that this system will not work too well.

Also won't work on IA mud farmer roads. I'll trade you MagCloride for your rock salt. If you have moisture, then you need booties.
