Time to remove studded tires

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- After three extensions, leaders at the Washington State Department of Transportation say the end of the day Monday is the deadline to remove studded tires.

Highway officials want the studs off because they cause ruts and millions of dollars worth of damage each year.

Not taking the tires off could lead to a 124 dollar fine.
