We, the undersigned, request that the Province of New Brunswick immediately bring in legislation to make the use of winter tires mandatory for all vehicles registered in the province (excluding transport trucks) from November 15th to April 15th.  This law will save a minimum of 10 lives per year in New Brunswick.  TEN COUNTRIES (Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Germany, and Japan) plus one province (Quebec) have this type of legislation already in place.

Reducing speed saves lives! liberal idiots...

Sorry I can't sign, but I hope you don't mind me making a comment. I'm from Ontario, but in Canada good winter tires are a necessity and they should pass the same law here in my Province. Don't they make Michelins in your Province? Michelin makes a new "winter" tire that you can now use all year. They are rated "Winter" on the sidewall but the advertisement says they stand up to summer conditions as well without early wear and you don't have the problem of storage if you live in an apartment like I do. While they cost about $50 extra than normal Michlins, I've found that black ice can happen even in late spring and early fall. Also when slush falls water plaining is a real problem in Canada. Besides the special and thicker tread, the rubber Michelin uses in it's new winter tires has micro beads built into the surface that sticks to ice. Winter tires do make a big difference in safety. Besides, didn't it used to be law that people used to have to buy winter tires? I seem to remember that when I was a little kid. Why on earth would they cancel that legislation? But in Ontario they only require all season radials, but some vehicles still use bias ply tires, some models of 4WD, Pick ups and SUVs, wouldn't they require winter tires to be safe in the winter? I don't think there is an all-season bias play is there? Regardless it's is unsafe. All Canada should have that law. Good luck with your petition.
