We read the article by Terry Murry in the Wednesday edition of the East Oregonian regarding winter and some of the hazards associated with it from the standpoint of our relationship with our vehicles.
Most of the article was done well and was informative.
However, we did want to caution readers regarding spraying antifreeze on locks, doors, and windshield wipers (as attributed to Earl Baker, AAA Portland).
We want your readers to know that antifreeze is a very poisonous liquid to pets and even in some cases small children.
If you choose to utilize this method, please try to prevent liquid from reaching the ground by dabbing up any excesses and making sure the area is secure from neighborhood pets and children.
There are other methods (some discussed in the article) that we and our environment would prefer.
