Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Soplombor 23, 1970 Studded Tires Banned TORONTO (CP) Studded tires will be prohibited from On- tario roads and highways after April 30, 1971, it was announced Tuesday. Highways Minister George Gomme said in a state- ment the action was taken to prevent driving hazards and costly damage to highways and streets. Transport Minister Irwin Has- kett said the decision was taken after an analysis of damage done by studded tires last win- ter, and investigations on safetj aspects of the tires' use. "The concern for the genera public safety as a result of the new hazards created by the damage to the highways by studded tires out-weigh the safety factors claimed for Mr. Haskett said. The prohibition will apply to vehicles from outside the prov- ince travelling on Ontario high- ways, although Mr. 'Haskett ad- mitted this will add to the diffi- culties of enforcing the law. MAXIMUM FINE S100 The penalty for driving with studded tires after April 30, 1971, will be a minimum fine of 520 or a maximum of A highways department study, made public early this year, predicted that 60 per cent of vehicles would be using stud- ed tires by the winter of 1971- 72 and that the damage to streets and highways in south- ern On t a r i o would be over 10 years. The department study said damage done by the studs in bare paved roadways could cause hazardous driving through ruts worn into the pave- ment and the-'disappearance o! lane guidelines. Mr. Gomme said additional studies were conducted last win- ter to judge the studded tires under various weather condi- tions. They attained safety ben- efit only under icy conditions, and then only to a limited de- gree. Oilier tests conducted by the Canada Safety Council and On- tario Provincial Police showed the tires' maximum benefit was in reducing stopping distance on glare ice when temperature was close to the freezing point. Th benefit declined as tlie tempera ture rose or dropped.
