Rather than breaking out the shovels in winter, just sprinkle sawdust on the driveway and water it after a snowfall.

So for the entire winter you'll have a quite tractive surface on the driveway, with almost no effort.

And during the summer the coolest driveway in the neighbourhood.

       Mainly, I think it would just make a mess.

       Looks like it. You'd probably need to beef up the doormat.

       Finally, a use for tree excrement (ie: leaves); left to dry then shredded down to 1cm² size.   

       After a snowfall, use a lawn-roller to flatten the driveway, then spread the tree-dust on top. It should be overall rather less energy expended than tossing snow off to the side.
