    it probably is cement. or they laid down lime, and you splashed some water up, they mixed, that basically makes concrete.

    i have no idea how to get it off

    If it's cement, that's going to be tough, no pun intended
    The only thing that may help is like a plastic spatula, and lots of water to carefully chip to away as much as you can before you can try buffing the rest off.

    Water and more water.... then use what Y2K said to use!
    Cement on a smooth surface, water water and then his stuff!

    Buffing is a bad plan!

    I suggest simple green and a pressure washer and a good buff/wax afterwards

    Thanks everyone, I'm going to order this product and hope that will do the job. Will post pic's before and after. And one more thing: whenever you drive thru construction zone be extra careful as some of dose contractors care less about damaging our beloved cars with the staff they spill on road
