Rural municipalities tend to use a lot of sand mixedth salt to increase traction on snowy roads. Any residual sand will act as tiny ball bearings under your tires causing a noticeable reduction in grip. When exiting off of a major rural road onto one less travelled, you may be driving from a road with good grip to one with very little grip as you encounter these sand-covered roads. Look where you want to go, slow down and expect the road to be slippery from sand
