Public Advisory: Studded Tire Season Extended

In the interest of public safety and considering recently updated weather forecasts that include freezing rain for many areas of the province, the last day to have studded tires removed from vehicles has been extended to Saturday, May 13.

Under the Highway Traffic Act studded tire use is normally permitted between November 1 and April 30. However, the Minister has the authority to extend the deadline in cases where it is deemed prudent.
