Default Grass driveway in northern climate

I will be looking to finish a driveway in the next year or so. Weighing options. Does anyone have an opinion of grass driveways in our climate? You use a substructure to provide the support and prevent soil compaction. Example:

My concern is that this might not work out due to salt runoff from cars in the winter and the snowblowing. But maybe with a more salt tolerant grass like a fescue this would work out ok?
