Hello rule readers!

This week at rules we look at winter weather tire requirements and review our last few posts.

Front Page Focus

R920-6, Traction Device/Tire Chain Requirements has quickly risen to the top of the most visited rules! R920-6 discusses the requirements of traction devices (including tire chains) used on vehicles during winter weather. Now is a great time to review this and be ready for the next big snow. If you’re interested in more information regarding traction device requirements, Section 41-6a-1636 of the Utah Motor Vehicle Act specifically discusses tire studs, tread depth, and a bit more on tire chains.

The Codification Segue and a link to today’s blog post round out our Front Page Focus for this week.
