I don't doubt it, but they are not raised or very minimally raised as I can see.  They started appearing two or three years ago and only during the fall/winter.  They don't seem to go to a storm drain and I have seen them on hills.

Hot rods run on roads so I will ask this question here.

Does anybody know what the lines in the road are?

I have seen them in several cities throughout NY and they are in each lane, I almost think I have seen them in VA but I can not be sure. They appear before winter or a while before any snow is in the forecast..  I am not sure what their function is, if they come from a plow or a garbage truck.  

I see them before the snow season so I don't see how they relate to a plow.  I don't think it is garbage truck because there are several garbage collection services within the state.  It isn't wide enough for the postal service and I see it on streets where the postman walks the route.

The darker color is from moisture but they are usually just a shade different than the road surface.  There is eight of them and they run parallel to each other, they will follow the curves in the road and will "turn" at some intersections. 

I have noticed them the past two or three years.

 

Any ideas?

It's a brine...pre-salting the road by spraying a brine solution on the roads, rather than chunks of salt, to get a head start on melting snow/preventing melted snow from freezing.

I noticed this long before and foretasted snow.  Is it a paste?  I never saw it wet.  The wet line in the picture is because it had recently stopped raining.

I thought a heavy salt like that before a storm would turn the road white or at least whiter.  I have heard of brine before but didn't know how it worked.  It gets in the cracks and prevents freezing reducing pot holes.  It can be applied 48 before a storm, but it seems to last longer and doesn't spread out, it stays in those lines.

I've also read something to the effect that there's a cheese component that helps it adhere and stay on the roadways after application, but I'm not 100% certain of that part.

It's also good to keep turkey moist during cooking, if you can find a way to cook a turkey on a frozen winter road.

So the other day I get a phone call from the local dealership informing me about a recall on my car.  The person told me that the manufacture does not have a solution for the recall as of yet but by the summer they hope to have a solution.  (I checked after the phone call, all of this is true Recall INCOMPLETE. Remedy not yet available.)

The sales person wanted to know if I wanted to come in and trade in my current car for a new car to get that headache off my mind.

I was livid.  First of all, I like driving a car until the wheels fall off.  Second I thought that this was an opportunist little fux and using fear to get me in a new car.  These are the same people that ran out of inspection stickers.  This really pissed me off.

I feel the same way zooer.  My wife however does not.  Had to ditch the last car (never could park it in the garage as it had a habit of starting on fire due to electrical recalls).  I just get mail on recalls for it now that I toss, but it does always have a sales pitch on the letter.  Kinda pisses me off as well, even though I have a different car now.

I looked it up, I thought maybe the rennet thickened the salt brine helping it stick.  What you are talking about is the whey, and yes they do use it.

However I don't think it will last, whey is very acidic and not good for surrounding vegetation and waterways.  Neither is salt so I don't know.

As long as it doesn't make the car's frame, fenders and rocker panels turn into swiss cheese rust in 2 years it has to be an improvement.

You guys are naive and brainwashed! Those are clearly accompanying chemtrails and are used to enhance the mindcontrol waves the TZOG is sending out. They came to the conclusion that it would be way more effective to apply it on the road and let the active chemical components be released to your in car air when you swirl them up with tire friction and exhaust fumes.

I love this.  Young girls learning mechanical stuff is awesome.  My daughter helped me put together a garage door when she was around six years old.

Sears carries a full line of tools that are pink.  I'm kind of skeptical about that.  I think if a girl is interested in mechanical stuff enough to want her own set of tools, it's not an area where she's going to be asserting her girlie side.

I often try to think of tasks she can help with when I'm fixing things. She was so thrilled the first time she helped me "fix the car" she was around 4 or 5 and replaced the air filter for me.

 

I have a purple set of tools. My ex-husband kept running off with my tools and not putting them back, so a friend bought me a purple set, so when I wanted to do something simple I didn't have to go hunting. I keep that bag in the trunk of the falcon, along with a full set of wrenches and sockets. It's a nice bag for holding tools in a trunk.

Heh. Are the tools purple or are they just in a purple bag?

I was talking to a guy today who has done some mechanical work, rides motorcycles, etc. He said that they love the pink tools. The tool vendors offer them at a good price, and nobody wants to steal them.

Not a car, but a small engine ... today my pressure washer seized up, between runs.  I shut it down to do some other work, then went to start it up again about 20 minutes later, and couldn't pull the cord.  Took off the recoil starter and tried to turn it by hand ... wouldn't budge.

What can make a small engine totally seize up like that?  It has oil, which has been changed on a good schedule, and I disconnected the water pump from both ends to make sure it wasn't stuck on the implement end.
