Studded Tire Usage Begins November 1
Beginning on Sunday, November 1, studded tires are permitted for use by those who choose to do so.
Labrador and portions of the west coast of Newfoundland have already seen snow so far this fall.
The provincial government reminds people to drive according to weather conditions.
Motorists can also better prepare their vehicles for winter by ensuring tires are in good condition, brakes, wipers and lights are in working order, and that all fluid levels including windshield wash, antifreeze and oil are checked. Carrying an emergency kit in the vehicle while travelling on the province’s highways, especially in the winter months, is encouraged.
