Year-Round Studs? 

That’s why state lawmakers are considering a bill that would let drivers keep retractable studded tires on a vehicle all year long.

It’s a technology that deploys the studs through an air chamber when roads get to the point where studs are needed.

The studs then retract when road conditions improve.

Right now drivers are only allowed to use studded tires in Maine from October through April.
