By , Columbian staff writer

Studded tires must be removed by Washington and Oregon drivers before March 31 or else drivers risk a fine of $137.

Studded tires cause $20 million and $29 million in damage to state-owned roads each winter, according to Washington State Department of Transportation Maintenance Operations Manager James Morin.

There is no individual exception or out of state waiver to the studded tire dates.
