OREGON-- If you need another sign that spring is here, today is the deadline to remove studded tires from your car in Oregon.

If you plan on driving in the mountains where there is still some snow, ODOT recommends stud-less snow tires or carrying chains.

Studded tires cause a lot of damage to Oregon roads. A study in 2014 found that studded tires cause 8.5 million dollars in damage to Oregon roads each year.
