Motorists in Washington will have through April 10 to remove their studded tires.

Due to the threat of more severe winter weather in the Cascade mountain range, the Department of Transportation officials extended the deadline today.

Drivers must remove their studded tires by 12:01 a.m., Sunday April 11.

Washington State Patrol troopers will give $124 fine to motorists who use
studded tires after the deadline. WSDOT encourages drivers, especially those heading into the higher elevations, to plan ahead and drive for conditions.
