Yeah, I was on the freeway today and he jumped in the road...lol

Thats Mag Cloride remover, not sure why it came out blue, then pink? I shot that stuff on my undercarriage all over. Pretty much have to use a pressure washer and stuff to get that crap off the truck. It eats/corrodes everything. I guess its not as bad as rock salt though.

It removes Magnesium Chloride from your truck. (very good thing)

Mag cloride is used by some states as a de-icer or anti-icer. Its applied before a winter storm and is very effective in keeping roadways just wet. It better for the environment than sodium chloride (rock salt) and surrounding plant life. It is also hell, like sodium chloride, on your electrical, all wiring, rubber bushings, and metals.

The stuff I was using is call "Mag Chloride Remover" and also mentioned that it takes care of sodium chloride. Its applied through a pressure washer.

I've been reading a lot about salts and other de-icers on the road. Pretty much have to have that stuff off your vehicle, or you will be paying for it in the long run. I've read it like to "eat" brake pads, scary stuff. Lots of people remove it by mixing soap/water and just rubbing it off. A standard pressure washer at your local car wash won't remove 100% of Mag Chloride that with the standard car soap... I guess mag chloride has a bonding agent in it...ewww

I found a local car wash in town that runs it, and went over there. I just paid like 7 bucks, and put a layer of that all over, and then shot the hell out of the undercarriage.

our province is using similar stuff on our roads now. have you noriced the small brown dots on your paint?
The stuff that looks like rail dust spots? I got that all over mine after a 2000 mile christmas trip to iowa and back. The only way to get rid of that junk is to clay bar your truck. :(

In Texas they call that stuff triple shine conditioner. I guarantee it is the same stuff...

Yep, looks like the same crap here in South Carolina, too... But, hey, if it works go for it. The county salted down the roads here last Thursday as well, what a dang mess, we didn't even get rained on hardly...

I use this .. not affilated with the product ... both my brother and I have been using this on our cars and trucks for years. He still has a '77 malibu that has never seen a body shop in his garage ...

I don't think they use much of that chloride crap here, it doesn't snow much here in the desert. My problem is the tire kicking dirt back and sandblasting the paint off the side of the truck. (it's bare metal)

They use both calcium chloride and magnesium chloride here in Northern VA and are still actively experimenting this season. They have also been experimenting with the bonding agent and are reporting positive results using sugar beet molasses.
If you see evenly spaced lines in your lane that don't seem permanent then your jurisdiction is using this pre-treater. The truck just looks like a water truck with an applicator manifold behind a really big mud flap to contain the spray.

I'm not entirely sure how bad molasses would be our finish and undercarriage. Some notes about the molasses bonding agent is here:
