Deadline looms for studded tires: The Washington Transportation Department reminds drivers that they need to remove their studded tires by midnight Sunday.

Unless the department grants an extension due to severe weather, studded tires are legal in Washington only from Nov. 1 to March 31, according to the Associated Press.

The department notes that forecasts look mild for the lowlands this year and no extension is planned.

Drivers traveling to higher elevations are urged to prepare for winter driving conditions with traction tires and chains if necessary. Driving with studded tires after March 31 could result in a $124 ticket.
