HALIFAX- Anyone who has not complied with annual legislation to remove studded winter tires will now have more time to do so. Nova Scotia drivers have until May 31 this year to remove studded tires from vehicles.

Service Nova Scotia Minister Mark Furey said, in a news release, government will extend the deadline after severe and extended weather conditions this winter.

The prohibited period, during which studded tires are not permitted on vehicles, will be changed to begin June 1 this year. Law enforcement agencies have been advised of the change.
