    Default PA. D.O.T. Using Beet Juice On Slippery Roads

    Philadelphians have heard of pickle juice being used for energy or kitty litter being used for traction but now beet juice could be used to combat slippery roads.

    The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is experimenting with beet juice as a way to treat icy roads in especially cold weather.
