We’re already more than halfway through October, and winter is just around the corner. And for those of us residing in the northern latitudes of the U.S., the winter months usually bring lots of the white stuff, making for treacherous, slippery conditions out on the road.

While useful in combating ice and snow, the compounds can leak into waterways, doing harm to the local environment, including pets. Solar Roadways says it’s got a better solution – modular solar panels you can drive on.
