British Columbians travelling most of the province’s highways will need to have winter tires equipped, starting Tuesday.
Motorists driving on those highways without the correct tires risk a possible fine of $109 and could be turned back from their destination.
Approved winter tires in B.C. either have the M+S (mud and snow) or three-peaked mountain and snowflake symbol. Winter tires must also have at least 3.5 millimetres of tread.
