Hi all;

It seems that with the nice weather, more and more people are getting their bikes out!!

Here in Quebec, it is a LAW that you need snowtires on ANY motorized vehicle from Dec 15, to March 15, NO EXCEPTIONS!!

We noticed a few bikes being pulled over this weekend, because of this law!!

Watch out!!! Its a 180.00 ticket!! and 2 points!!

Wait a week!!

Regards,

Bowdon

Thought this was only for vehicles registered in Quebec. Not for out of province vehicles.

http://www.mtq.gouv.qc.ca/portal/pa..._hivernales/reglement_utilisation_pneus_hiver

“Between December 15 to March 15, the owner of a taxi or passenger vehicle registered in Québec may not put the vehicle into operation unless it is equipped with tires specifically designed for winter driving, in compliance with the standards prescribed by government regulation. The prohibition also applies to any person renting out passenger vehicles not equipped with that type of tires.”

It also says there are no points for a conviction.
