Product Experience Survey

In an effort to encourage the evaluation of products related to winter maintenance and the distribution of those results, Clear Roads conducts an informal Product Experience Survey at the end of each winter season. Member states are invited to share the results of pilot-testing of winter maintenance products and materials that their agencies have conducted that year. Clear Roads compiles all survey results received from 2006 through the current winter season. See below for details.

Clear Roads does not endorse any of the products evaluated. This informal survey is meant to be a tool for states to share experiences with winter maintenance products, not a scientific evaluation of product performance.

The 2017-2018 survey will be available for members to complete in spring 2018.

Survey Results: 2006-2017 Winter Seasons

The following products were evaluated during one or more winter seasons from 2006-2017:


Brine Makers/Blenders



Location Technologies


Lighting Systems

Information Management Systems/Sensors
