Motorist Group Helping Quebec Winter Tyre Buyers
(Tire Review) Quebec’s CAA wants to help motorists to make informed decisions on winter tyres as the season grows closer. The motorist group has developed an online reminder system for drivers, which includes winter tyre purchase pointers. “Being well informed is crucial,” said Sophie Gagnon, CAA-Quebec’s senior director of public and government relations. “This is a significant expense for drivers and a matter of safety. The reminder is designed so consumers can have a guide at their fingertips when they are making their choice. In fact, it covers the essential questions that have to be answered before the purchase.” The electronic version is available at CAA-Quebec, or in person at CAA-Quebec’s 12 service centres, 10 technical inspection centres, or nine outlets offering vehicle registration services. Quebec law requires vehicles to be equipped with winter tyres by 15 December.
