Sunset 4 51 By Jerry Dickinson even before the first Strong flurry of Snow fills the Iowa skies the controversy Over the biting steel tips of Snow tires will be filling the air. The staff of the Iowa state Highway commission is strongly urging the studded Snow tires be banned immediately to prevent damage to Iowa roads. Minnesota leads opposition the safety aspect of the Carbide tipped tires has been strongly attacked especially by the Minnesota Highway department. That state has now banned the tires. Citing the action of the Canadian province of Ontario in Banning studded tires effective last april 30, staff members of the Minnesota Highway department have issued statements saying the studded tires increase the stopping distances under More circumstances than when they help while tests show the studs Cut stopping distances on Glare ice when the temperature is just below freezing several tests have claimed they increase the stopping distance on dry or wet pavement and in Slushy Loose Snow u. I i Ontario records show Glare ice conditions occur Only 1.1 per cent of the time. Also mentioned in attacks on the studded tires is the Point that the Ontario Highway patrol refused to use the tires because of a loss of traction on wet and dry pavements especially skidding on turns. Prevented accidents on the other Side of the argument Are reports such As the one from the tire Industry safety Council which said studded tires prevented 220,000 accidents in Minnesota during 1969. This was blasted by the Minnesota Highway department staff As being biased to promote the Sale of the tires Ross r. Ormsby president of the tire Industry safety Council strongly backs the use of the tires insisting they Are Worth the Highway damage even if Only a single life is saved. A what is More important a human life or a sack of Concrete a Ormsby was quoted As saying in a new York times article. However critics cite the negative safety Factor of grooving of pavement by the tires. With the steel tips cutting grooves in the Road these grooves can hold water which in turn could cause hydroplaning unexpected patches of ice in sub freezing weather or steering problems even if no water was present. Wear on paving the one undisputed fact is that they do add to the Wear of the pavement. The Highway research Board has estimated the steel tips have added $26 million to the annual Road maintenance costs in Michigan and $12 million in Wisconsin. Iowa has just begun checking various locations to determine the Wear on the states roads which could be attributed to the tires. The spots were measured october 1970, last april and again last month which provides data on Only one Winter. Stephen Roberts research Engineer for the Iowa state Highway commission said the initial measurements did not provide any measurements showing significant Wear but More years of study would be necessary. The commission meeting next tuesday and wednesday will consider a recommendation to the state legislature to ban the tires immediately. Earlier it approved the principle of Banning the tires but did not Deal with the specific wording of the Bill it will recommend to the see tires Page eight doctrinal conflict a perhaps the subject of Ute St. Paul hours self examination is the doctrinal revision being carried on by the methodist hour at the St. Paul methodist Church in Lincoln.
