            The deadline to have studded tires removed from vehicles has been extended. The original deadline was April 15, but an emergency order last month extended that deadline to May 1. Another emergency order came through the Alaska Department of Public Safety Commissioner’s Office this week to extend the deadline even further, this time to May 15.
            As winter still lingers in weather forecasts across the state, the department sought to ensure drivers were safe on roads still covered with snow and ice. The deadline isn’t expected to be extended beyond May 15, and citations will be issued to those still driving with studded tires.
