Last day to remove your studded snow tires in Washington, if you didn’t get the memo that this mild winter didn’t require them. Or if you just haven’t had time.
After today, you risk a $124 fine if caught driving with them on. You could be paying a fee to use them in the future too. Bills introduced in the state House and Senate (one introduced by Andy Billig, D-Spokane) this session would require a permit to use studs.
The Seattle Times has more info on why these bills probably won’t succeed, and a new report on how damage studded tires actually do to our streets.
