  • You can use studded tires in Oregon from November 1st – March 31st. Driving with studded tires at other times is a Class C violation and carries a $200 fine.
  • From November 1st – April 30th in Oregon, parking in any of over 100 Sno-Parks requires a valid permit. Sno-Park permits from both Idaho and California are honored in Oregon.
  • Turning on your low-beam headlights during the daytime in the winter months and during low natural light conditions can help make your vehicle more visible.
  • Keep your car headlights clean and bright by getting in the habit of wiping off your lights when refueling.
  • Always check your oil when your vehicle engine is cold and antifreeze when your engine is hot for the most accurate readings.
  • Keep tools, spare tire/in a can, flashlights, atlas, maps, blankets, extra food, water and clothing in your vehicle at all times.
  • Make sure the tires on your vehicle are properly inflated by testing them regularly with a tire gauge.
  • Bridges and overpasses are the most dangerous parts of the road in the winter because they are the first to freeze and the last to thaw.
