MONTREAL — From now until March 15, winter tires are obligatory in Quebec and any motorists who don’t obey the law will face stiff fines. But beginning next year, the deadline for installing winter tires is being moved back to Dec. 1 from the current deadline of Dec. 15. Those caught driving without winter tires face fines that vary from $200 to $300, plus costs. A spokeswoman for CAA-Quebec reminds motorists that winter tires perform better, are more efficent in cold temperatures and significantly reduce the risk of accidents. Annie Gauthier also suggests that motorists should even consider getting their winter tires installed in the month of October next year.
