Studded tire deadline extended
Late season snow means the state is extending the deadline to remove studded tires. The removal deadline is now by 11:59 p.m. April 15, two weeks later than normal.
State law allows the Washington State Department of Transportation to extend the deadline into April if current or predicted conditions could make for difficult travel. The decision to extend is made in consultation with meteorologists and maintenance supervisors. The deadline was last extended in 2012.
Starting April 16, drivers with studded tires on their vehicles face a $136 fine.
