Beet juice is going to help keep the streets of another suburb clear of ice this winter.North suburban Lindenhurst will use a mixture of a beet by-product and salt to put on roads.

It's been used in other suburbs and in communities in northwest Indiana for several years.

Experts say the mixture saves money, is better for the environment, and will mean less rust on cars.
