Get those winter tires on, Quebec deadline Dec. 1

By News Staff

It may not look like winter in and around Montreal yet, but winter tires are mandatory in Quebec as of Dec. 1.

Drivers without them could be fined $200 to $300.

Under Quebec’s highway safety code, it’s mandatory to have winter tires on vehicles between Dec. 1 to March 15 inclusively.

“However, because spring conditions can be variable, it is recommended that you wait until a few weeks after the end of this period to install your all-season or summer tires,” according to the Quebec government.

The requirement applies to all motor vehicles registered in the province, including rental vehicles – but does not apply to trailers.
