Spokesman-Review Letter to the EditorStudded tires the culprit

Regarding Ray Moss’ letter on the condition of the intersection at North Foothills Drive and Hamilton Street. He purports poor concrete. Nonsense. It’s poor judgment on the part of inexperienced drivers who mask their inept driving ability with studded tires.
Eventually, the concrete has to succumb to the superior strength of the hardened steel studs. Therefore, he sees the result and, of course, being a logical person, can bring judgment against studs.

Thanks for saying it Mr. Liepelt so I don’t have to. With lots of issues with our transportation infrastructure, and few ways to fund fixing them, we’re going to have to take a look at issues like studded tires and weigh the pros and cons of still using them.
