Compulsory winter equipment
Special equipment for vehicles is no longer an option, but is now compulsory in winter. This applies to the whole Savoie region, and shall be in force between the 1st November and 31st March.
Light vehicles, utility vehicles and motorhomes must now:
- either be equipped with steel or fabric snow chains for at least two drive wheels;
- or be equipped with four winter tyres with the 3 PMSF (Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake) logo featuring the letters MS, M+S or M&S.
- Users can also choose to fit '4 seasons' tyres, as long as they have the 3 PMSF logo + the letters MS, M+S or M&S.
This obligation does not apply to vehicles equipped with studded tyres.
Penalties will apply for those who fail to comply. Drivers who do not have the necessary equipment may be issued a 4th category fine, i.e., a 135 euro fine and possible immobilisation of the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle shall be liable for the penalties, not the owner.
