March 31 marks the end of using studded tires without the possibility of incurring a fine.

The Washington State Department of Transportation sent out a reminder to all drivers that the legal season to use studded tires runs from Nov. 1 to March 31 unless they issue an extension due to inclement weather. With the rising of mild temperatures, WSOT does not planning on extending the deadline.

Under state law, vehicles using studded tires after March 31 could be cited a $124 ticket from law enforcement.
