Bill Summary

Currently, a person is required to use certain traction control equipment, such as chains or snow-rated tires, when the Colorado department of transportation restricts road use due to a winter storm. The bill broadens this law to require the traction equipment to be carried on I-70 between milepost 133 (Dotsero) and milepost 259 (Morrison) between October 1 to May 15 of each year. The bill also requires that this traction control equipment be used when icy or snowy conditions are present.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
