    Five days of the deadline of 15 December to install the winter tires, there are still drivers who have not yet done so, and that will be at the last minute.

    This is the case even in Quebec, where there is already a good cover of snow which makes driving more hazardous, when his vehicle is not equipped with the right tires.

    But beyond the quantity of snow, it is important to take account of the temperature. The CAA-Quebec recommends that you also rely on your mercury and install their winter tires as soon as it goes below 7 degrees Celsius.

    Sign that motorists have changed their habits, the mechanics of the Québec city region consulted by the reporter from TVA News reported that traffic was considerably larger in November than in December. Moreover, according to recent data, nine drivers out of ten would ask their winter tires before the end of November.

    The ministère des Transports du Québec has presented last week its reform of the Code of road safety where the proposed action consists of advancing from the 15th to the 1st of December, the deadline for the installation of its tyres for the winter season. This amendment should enter into force in the fall of 2018.
