Studded tire deadline is Monday

After extending the studded tire deadline to Monday the Washington State Department of Transportation reminds drivers to remove their studded tires.

Drivers traveling to higher elevations should still prepare for winter driving conditions. While WSDOT road crews continue working, no one can guarantee ice- and snow-free roadways. Drivers should check the forecast, use traction tires and carry chains, and always drive for conditions.

Studded tires are legal in Washington from Nov. 1 to March 31, unless WSDOT grants an extension.

Drivers who don't follow Washington's rules of the road risk a citation from law enforcement. For more information on studded tires, visit www.wsdot.wa.gov/winter/studtire.
