The threat of winter driving has mostly subsided, which means it’s time to remove studded tires from your vehicle.
The deadline to have them off is Monday, the state Department of Transportation reported.
Studded tires are legal in Washington from Nov. 1 to March 31, unless DOT extends it. Drivers who don’t remove the studded tires by the deadline face a citation.
DOT reminds drivers who head to higher elevations to still prepare for winter driving and carry chains.
“While WSDOT road crews continue working, no one can guarantee ice- and snow-free roadways,” DOT reported.
