Who can use the grit and what can it be used for?

Question:
Who can use the grit and what can it be used for?
Answer:

The equivalent of a bag of sugar’s worth of salt should cover 25m² of highway. When salt is driven/walked over this creates a solution that lowers the freezing point of water. 

If you are unsure about whether you should remove snow and ice from road surfaces yourself, please read the Government guidelines.

Salt provided for grit bins is not for private footpaths and drives.
