    *** New for 2016*** the Colorado Department of Transportation will have stricter enforcement of the state's Passenger Vehicle Traction & Chain Laws which states:

    If weather conditions require, CDOT can implement Passenger Vehicle Traction and Chain Laws. Motorists will be alerted to an active Traction or Chain Law by highway signage.

    Traction Law (Code 15) - During an active Traction Law, also known as a Code 15, motorists will need to have either snow tires, tires with the mud/snow (M/S) designation, or a four-wheel drive vehicle — all tires must have a minimum one-eighth inch tread.

    Passenger Vehicle Chain Law (Code 16) - During severe winter storms, CDOT will implement a Passenger Vehicle Chain Law, also known as a Code 16 — this is the final safety measure before the highway is closed. During a Passenger Vehicle Chain Law, every vehicle on the roadway is required to have chains or an alternative traction device (like AutoSock).

    Fines - Motorists driving with inadequate equipment during a Passenger Vehicle Traction or Chain Law could be fined more than $130. If a motorist blocks the roadway because they have inadequate equipment during a Passenger Vehicle Traction or Chain Law, they could be fined more than $650.
