MONTAGNE RHÔNE LAW: REGULATORY EQUIPMENT
Rhône motorists will have several choices to equip their car in accordance with the new regulations this winter, between removable and non-removable anti-slip devices :
- winter tires or 3PMSF approved 4-season tires (Alpine symbol) on all 4 wheels of the vehicle
- snow chains or snow socks, at least on the two drive wheels
Tires which are only identified by the M+S (Mud and Snow) marking and not the 3PMSF marking are tolerated until November 1, 2024.
If snow tires , which are expensive and difficult to install, are suitable for people who drive daily on sections of roads subject to the Mountain law, it is preferable to turn to removable equipment. for the others. However, snow socks do not allow you to drive on dry asphalt , which requires the motorist to take them off and put them back on each time there is snow.
