I live in NC where there are very few snow removal devices owned by the state or cities and they've been using a salt brine solution on the roads here for the past few years.
Apparently it works pretty well as long as they get it on the roads before it starts snowing. If it rains before it snows it will wash off the brine so it's not good in that situation either. I've never heard it called "pickle juice" however.

They did this as well in my area, mixed the brine with a molasses mixture...stuck to the road just fine

They have been utilizing this salt brine solution for the past few years. Works great...and as an added benefit, the roads seem to 'dry' quickly without any residue slush/ice.
