Drivers get a few more days this year to get their studs off of their tires before possibly getting a $190 fine and a Class C traffic violation. ODOT extended the studded tire season through Monday, April 4th because of continued tough driving conditions in snow zones. ODOT's Peter Murphy says going forward they hope more drivers will switch away from using studded snow tires. “Please look at those studless tires in the future if you can. Everyone knows the damage that studded tires cause to our roads, and that's just a plus for ODOT to say they're your highways and the studs do a lot of damage and there are some really good tires out there that can handle whatever your needs are."  ODOT says studded tires cause at least $40 million in damage each year on city streets, county roads and state highways. The normal deadline for stud removal is April 1st.
