Going back to the question about road salt, Massachusetts and Rhode Island use so much more salt than other states. I live in RI near the MA border and instead of plowing the streets they just salt them w/o plowing. My mechanic said my car was once owned in MA because of the type of rust on it... and he was right!
However, New Hampshire does a great job with their roads (completely clear right after a storm), and they barely use any salt. Go figure...
