WSDOT Reminds Drivers to Remove their Studded Tires by Midnight, March 31.

Posted: Updated:
 OLYMPIA – As spring approaches across the region, the Washington State Department of Transportation reminds drivers to remove their studded tires by midnight, March 31.

Under state law, driving with studded tires after March 31 is a traffic infraction and could result in a $124 ticket.

In addition, studs can wear down pavement, so removing them promptly helps extend the lifetime of state roadways. Tire removal services can get crowded as the deadline approaches, so please plan accordingly.

Washington and Oregon share the same studded tire removal date. Other states may have later deadlines, but the Washington law applies to all drivers in the state, even visitors. No personal waivers are issued.

More information about studded tire regulations in Washington is available online.
