BC chain rules back in effect

VANCOUVER — Starting tomorrow, Oct. 1, 2008 rules requiring commercial trucks to carry chains will be back in effect.

The regulation, which does not impact Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, runs until April 30, 2009.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoT) posts signs wherever the rules are enforced.

DriveBC contains a chain-up information webpage and supplies brochures with information on different types of chains and suggested chain-up configurations for both passenger and commercial vehicles.

Status reports for commercial drivers provide updates on requirements at specific highway chain-up locations.
