Hi pressure water would be the first thing i try. If that doesn't work I'd ask a detailing shop.

Try a clay bar or acrylic laquer thinner, maybe your lucky and it's not cement.

The thinner will not hurt your car if your careful, don't get too aggressive. If it's not coming off in a few passes, it won't work. Use it every day getting trash off the paint of fenders behind the tires.

Otherwise, I wouldn't know what to do for cement. Haven't come across it yet.

Try some vinegar or diluted muriatic acid. This should eat the lime and soda from the concrete, leaving the sand, etc to rinse off. Test an area of your paint to make sure the acid will not harm it first!!!
