      Cons: Sand is a natural product, so it doesn’t create ecological problems like sand does. However, sand can clump together and cause issues for roads and drainage ditches. If the sand gets buried by snow or more ice, it will not provide the necessary traction. Salt and sand are currently the best ways to melt ice and create traction on ice.   Sand can melt ice if it is heated naturally from the sun or a warm temperature--just like any other substance that is warmer than ice. The actual texture of sand does not cause ice to melt, which is why you would have to place a blanket of warm sand on ice for it to melt.
