A recent survey shows that outside of Quebec, where winter tire use is required by law, only 51 per cent of Canadian drivers use winter tires. Many of those drivers believe that all-season tires are good enough for winter driving. Winter tires, when used in winter weather, can stop in up to a 30 per cent shorter distance than all season tires. Studies have also shown that winter tires used in cold weather and summer tires throughout the rest of the year can reduce fuel consumption by as much as five per cent. Winter tires have been proven to decrease collisions and reduce personal injury accidents.
