Snow is great for building snowmen and ice is great to skate on, but neither are good for students. Students around Kent State have been slipping and sliding their way to class on the campuses sidewalks. The university uses 10 trucks and 20 groundskeepers to clear these 22 miles of sidewalk after a winter storm . But their efforts don’t seem enough to satisfy students around campus as there are still large amounts ice on the sidewalks long after the winter storms have blown through. However with the record low temperatures around Kent the salt may have become ineffective. According to the Ohio department of Transportation salts effectiveness significantly decreases when the pavement drops below 15 degrees and becomes ineffective when the temperature falls below -6. For some students who have fallen from the uncleared sidewalks the weather is not an excuse to have to slide to class. For broadcast beat reporting I’m Raymond Allan.
