Don't worry about chipping the paint. Worry about corrosion.

They don't use salt here in Alaska, but they do use pea gravel. So, while I'm glad to say we have no chemically induced corrosion, I do have a windshield chip. Also saw where I also got a very tiny, almost unnoticeable paint chip - wouldn't you know, right at the very edge of the clear bra I had installed. Grrr!

Worry less about corrosion and worry more about death if they didn't do salting!

Georgia! I just spent a week in Chicago and boy do they use a lot of salt. There is no way you can keep your car clean in winter. I still have to get all the salt out from under the car.
