Move over, road salt. There's a new ice-melting technology up ahead, and it could prove to be safer for humans—and the environment—than the troublesome salt crystals used in most snowy regions. For the past several years, researchers have been working to develop a way for roads to de-ice themselves using a low-voltage electric charge built into the roadway. One such approach is gaining traction, and could become part of U.S. roads in just a few years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLNk-CwvIkQ Chris...
