on Winter Tires

While approving of the use winter tires under snow and ice conditions in Quebec, proposes some practical changes to the recent law.

Proposes that the law be modified to require from November 15 to April 15, each year, that the owner of all motor vehicles in Quebec involved in a motor vehicle accident, or found to be blocking the public way as a result of insufficient quality approved winter tires, be charged with an offence under the motor vehicle act of Quebec.

Under such a revised program, Quebec drivers may operate their vehicles under conditions that pose no hazard, but under snow and ice conditions, would absolutely require the use of snow tires, thereby permitting travel to and from Florida to be made without snow tires, and making the law more practical on fully clear roadways.
