Spring has arrived … the dark days of Winter are in our rearview mirrors. And with the passing of Winter so go studded tires. Yesterday was the last day for Washington drivers to remove their studded tires or face an expensive ticket from one of our local law enforcement agents. In previous years, due to inclement weather, the Washington Department of Transportation has extended the deadline for removal of studded tires. Not so this year. Transportation crews will be monitoring our roadways for studded tire scoff-laws. Anyone with studded tires will be cited. This law applies to all drivers, including visitors. So, ensure family and loved ones from out-of-state visiting don’t cross our borders with the dreaded studded tires.
