Caltrans Chain Control Requirement Levels:

W:    No Restrictions – Watch for snow on pavement.

R-1:    Chains are required on all commercial vehicles (trucks or buses). All other vehicles (cars, pick-ups, vans, etc.) must have either snow tread tires or chains on the drive axle.

R-2:    Chains are required on all vehicles except four-wheel drives with snow tread tires. Four-wheel drive vehicles must carry chains in the vehicle.

R-3:    Chains required – ALL VEHICLES – no exceptions.

Snow chains can be purchased at retail department stores, sporting goods, and auto parts stores. Mountain weather can change dramatically on very short notice.

IT’S THE LAW: Carry tire chains at all times during winter travel in the mountains!

SNOW PLAY ON OR NEAR ROADWAYS IS VERY DANGEROUS – DON’T DO IT! – DON’T RISK IT!
