March 25, 2021
OLYMPIA — Drivers have just a few more weeks to remove studded tires from their vehicles.
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) reminds drivers that state law requires all studded tires to be removed by the end of the day March 31. Starting on April 1, drivers with studded tires face a $136 fine, according to a WSDOT representative.
“Studded tires damage pavement, so removing them promptly after winter helps preserve state roadways. Tire removal services can get crowded near the removal deadline, so please plan accordingly,” stated the official.
