Northern Ontario drivers can legally use studded tires until May 31st
In a media release the North Bay Police Service issued earlier today, we provided incorrect information regarding a Highway Traffic Act regulation with respect to studded tires.
Previously, studded tires were only allowed from Oct 1st to April 30th. In 2014, the Ontario government extended the period when drivers who reside in Northern Ontario can use studded tires. The period is from September 1st to May 31st.
We apologize for the error.
