Making Tire Tracks Disappear: How We Saved a Driveway

A few weeks after your new driveway is poured a winter blizzard hits.  You live on a hill and the roads are terrible.  You have to get out so you chain up.   Your adventure concluded, you arrive back home only to have difficulty making it up the slope into your garage.  Your car fish-tales a bit and your tires spin but you make it into the garage with a sigh of relief.  Everything is great until the snow melts a few days later and you notice dark tire tracks up the driveway and into the garage.  Unfortunately these aren’t ordinary tire tracks.  These are where you tire chains ground into the surface of the fresh concrete.  No amount of washing or scrubbing will do anything to make them better.  The actual finish on the concrete is gone.  To make matters worse, you live at the top of a small hill on a bend in the road so everyone driving up the hill can’t help but stare at your newly desecrated driveway.  It is right in front of them and it is impossible to miss.
