Oregon extends studded tire season

The Oregon Department of Transportation is extending the studded tire season through Saturday, April 17, because of continued difficult driving conditions in some snow zones.

Motorists should have their studded tires removed from their vehicles by 12:01 a.m. Sunday, April 18. Failing to do so will result in a minimum $190 fine. The state department of transportation encourages drivers to not wait until the deadline if they are not driving in snowy conditions.

The transportation department also urges drivers to consider other types of traction tires or chains available because of the damages studded tires cause.
