Drivers are reminded that studded tires on vehicles must be off as of midnight April 30 or the consequence could be a fine of $109.
RCMP Sgt. Al Steinhauser, Prince George traffic unit commander, says summer roads and studded tires, which are most effective in the snow, simply don't mix due to damage caused to road surfaces and faster wear of the tires.
The Motor Vehicle Act outlines you can have them on between October 1 and April 30. There isn't any safety need for them after that," said Steinhauser.
