Snow Tires Required By Law

 

 

In Quebec, Canada, snow tires are required, by law, for winter driving after December 15, until March 15.

While in the United States snow tires aren't a necessity by law, it is a good idea to use snow tires if one is going to be doing a lot of driving on snow and ice.

Keep tires properly inflated. Check air pressure on cold tires. Wait at least three hours after stopping vehicle even after just a one mile drive.

Keep your car in good working condition and be prepared for winter hazards.
