Vernon, linois Metal-Studded Tires Are Illegal In Illinois SPRINGFIELD, ILL., — Tire manufacturers were warned today that use of metal studded tiros on Illinois highways is illegal. In letters to the tire companies Illinois Public Works Director Francis S. Lorenz requested their cooperation to avoid misleading the motoring public. Pointing out that advertising offering the studded tires for sale has appeared in various media recently, he requested that this practice be stopped. Lorenz again called attention to a section of the Uniform Act Regulating Traffic on Illinois highways that provides: "No motor vehicle shall be operated upon the Improved highways of Danville. Two men died Friday in a head-on collision of their cars near Coal City in Grundy County. The victims were Albert Watson, To, of Braceville, and William McLuckie, 19, of Coal City. the state which shall be equipped with any anti-skid or non- slip device so constructed that any rigid or non-flexible portion of same comes in contact with the pavement. . . " He also cited an opinion issued by the Attorney General of Illinois that "any use of the metal studded tires on the highways of this state would be illegal." Engineers of the Illinois Division of Highways have made a series of tests to determine the effect of the use of metal studded tires. Results of the latest tests, conducted last spring, are still being evaluated. Under winter conditions in Illinois, use of studded tires on bare pavements will exceed greatly their use on Ice and snow, research has disclosed. It is the policy of Illinois highways maintenance crews to remove snow and ice from the pavement as soon as practical after storms.
