    I hope that they hammered each one with the maximum fine. Maybe WA should consider raising the fine to say around $5-10k..

    If chain rules were in place they'll be up for a hefty fine also.

    You know what the chain up sign means? It means you park it. Look ahead on the weather folks.

    One would think having to pay the tow bill for such conditions would be punishment enough. Can't imagine that gets done for cheap or free.
     
    Crude Truckin' and Bean Jr. Thank this.

    That be what weather and road condition apps/websites are for but sadly most fly blindly by the seat of their pants and/or don’t speak nor understand english. I chain up, I used to live up there near Yakima. Every time I’ve chained up there was always them one or two clowns that tempted fate without chaining and ruined it for everyone that did chain.
     
    Siinman, '88K100, mjd4277 and 3 others Thank this.

    That’s
    I learned how to chain at the TA up there & taught some other drivers how to chain there a few years later. How many languages do they have chain up laws written in now ?
