Don’t wait to get your winter tires installed.
That’s the message from Sgt John Ferguson with West Kootenay Traffic Services.
It’s October now and that means it’s the law to have winter tires on your vehicle on certain highways and mountain passes.
He says many people get caught off guard when they wake up on the morning after the first real winter weather.
The weather is nice at the moment but black ice in the early mornings is now possible.
