Danish media are reporting that stocks of road salt are running low:
“Britain is the big culprit. They use too much [salt]”, says Per Nygaard.
He justifies this with the country’s road network, where A roads are narrow and bad. This means that in his view, all it takes is just a little bit of snow on the roadside before they begin to use road salt.
“They pour salt on by the bucketload. Their demand is enormously high,” explains the manager of Brøste [a salt distributor].
