Remove studded tires by May 31

Island drivers have until May 31 to remove studded tires from vehicles this year. 

Studded tires are only permitted between October 1 and May 31. 

Extended use can damage highway markings and create ruts that collect water. 

Drivers could face fines of up to $150 if they are used off season.

Do your part to prevent unnecessary wear and tear on Island roads and your tires.
