Winter tires are once again required for most highways in B.C.
Chains or winter tires are required on most routes in the province from Oct. 1 to April 30 every year.
This applies to all highways in the Interior and North regions and some of the South Coast and Vancouver Island regions.
Tires need to have an M+S symbol and a minimum tread depth of 3.5 millimetres.
Passenger vehicles without proper tires could be fined $121.
Commercial vehicles bypassing an active chain-up area can be fined $598 and $196 if not carrying chains.
