    has anyone had damage cause by the gritters!

    i've had damage done to my everyday car which has really p***** me off, the grit trucks seem to throw grit everywhere i've had grit all up my windscreen... and its cause abit of stone chip damage...

    i'd hate to think that this has happend to peoples porsches or their normal cars...

    each time a see a grit truck and have to take evasive driving!

    Re: has anyone had damage cause by the gritters!

    I've been sprayed with grit about 5 times now. Unavoidable. Haven't given the car a good pampering wash in daylight for months, but I don't seem to have picked up any damage yet. The paint quality and thickness is pretty good. Not very nice to drive through I agree. I wince every time!

    Re: has anyone had damage cause by the gritters!

    Just stay far back. Even doing that other vehicles will still throw the grit/sand/rocks so keep a nice gap ahead of you if you can.

    I can't wait until they clean up the roads in the spring.

    Re: has anyone had damage cause by the gritters!

    on a local a road it looked like a sand storm behind the grit truck!

    and there were loads of cars trailing behind

    good thing was i wasnt behind it!

    Good advice, but often it is a single carriageway road, with the gritter traveling the oposite direction, or sometimes you HAVE to pass one on a dual carriageway. I try to reduce speed to about 10mph greater than the gritter so I don't slam into the grit at speed, neither do I spend too long in the spray. Tough though. Agree - avoid if at all possible.
