Studded tire season ends

April 2, 2013

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

The 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 it issues an extension due to inclement weather. With the rising of mild temperatures, the department is not planning to extend the deadline.

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