A Third Of Ontario Motorists Forego Winter Tires. Do You Have A Preference?

More and more Canadian and Ontarian motorists are switching over to winter tires for winter driving.  In Quebec it is now law to use winter tires.   According to this survey that leaves 32% who drive All Seasons for all seasons.  Do you have a preference or notice any difference?

 

 

Nearly half (49%) of British Columbia drivers now own winter tires, compared to 38% in 2014;

Alberta’s usage rate is now 55% versus 45% in 2014;

In Manitoba and Saskatchewan, usage has climbed 11 percentage points to 50%;

65% of Ontario drivers now use winter tires compared 56% two years ago; and

In Atlantic Canada, where winter tire usage is traditionally second only to Quebec, usage has risen eight percentage points to 81%.

Among the 32% of drivers still not using winter tires, the belief that all-season tires provide sufficient traction (48%) and cost (23%) are the most common barriers to adopting winter tires, according to the 2016 TRAC Winter Tire Report.
