Prince George, BC – Today marks the start of BC’s winter tire rules, so tread carefully…
“It’s our annual reminder to drivers to ensure your vehicle has winter tires if you will be travelling on designated routes, and to ensure the tires are in good condition, with appropriate traction,” says Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Todd Stone.
Motorists must have winter tires labelled with either the Mountain Snowflake symbol or the Mud and Snow (M+S) symbol from now until March 31st if they want to travel on any highway in northern BC, as shown on map below…
The fine for drivers who do not have the proper winter tires on their vehicle on designated routes is $121-dollars.
