The Washington State Department of Transportation is reminding drivers to remove their studded tires by midnight, March 31.

"Our forecasters expect mild temperatures with little chance for snow or ice across much of Washington's lowlands," said Chris Christopher, WSDOT Maintenance Operations director. "Drivers are encouraged to remove studded tires as soon as possible because tire stores will be busy leading up to April 1."

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