Drivers traveling to higher elevations should still prepare for winter driving conditions. While WSDOT road crews continue working, no one can guarantee ice- and snow-free roadways. Drivers should check the forecast, use traction tires and carry chains, and always drive for conditions.
Studded tires are legal in Washington from Nov. 1 to March 31, unless WSDOT grants an extension.
Drivers who don’t follow Washington’s rules of the road risk a citation from law enforcement. For more information on studded tires, visit www.wsdot.wa.gov/winter/studtire.
