In the harsh cold weather conditions of winter, driving can be hazardous. That is why winter tires are about to be made compulsory. This is in keeping with the safety standards of the transportation department.

The usual tires on vehicles are made of a hard form of rubber that can get brittle in the inclement winter. That is why the necessity of employing winter tires that are softer is of the essence. When the climatic conditions are such that there is snow and rain and muddy roads, then these special forms of reinvention are very vital for passenger security. 

There has been talk of removing snow from the transport routes. This is said to be a better strategy than providing expensive winter tires to every citizen. Besides, the legislation of this statute is a headache of sorts. 

Canada faces the issue of frosty winter weather. And while heating and insulation is alright indoors, things in the great outdoors are another matter altogether. The amelioration that have taken place in road accidents, since the legislative efforts got underway, are a hopeful sign of progress. 

Meanwhile, the city council unanimously decided awhile back to forestall the further mandatory approval of winter tires. The councilors believe that there is not that great a difference between the two types of tires. However, there are many who beg to differ in this regard. 

They say that protection against freaky weather is and ought to be made a part of the rules and regulations. Whichever way you look at it, the expenses have to be paid. Whether it is clearing up the piles of snow or utilization of winter tires…the choice lies with the Canadians.
