Why do I see white stripes on roads in winter time?

Prior to a given storm event, the Superintendent of Public Works may have crews apply liquid sodium chloride called “Brine” on the roads. This Brine turns white leaving the roads residual coated with salt which prevents ice bonding to the road surface. This application of brine also allows rock salt to react quicker and be applied in lesser quantities.
