Winter tires required
Winter is coming. Winter tires should be on your vehicle from Oct. 1 to April 1. German law requires that vehicles have “adequate tires” for winter driving. This means that in high-snow areas like Bavaria, vehicles must have snow tires mounted. In areas not regarded as “snow prone” like Wiesbaden, the use of all-season tires with an M/S label or a snowflake label are acceptable. Winter tires should have a tread depth of at least 3 millimeters. While there is no criminal penalty for not having snow tires in this area, your insurance company could find you at fault if you are involved in an accident even if you didn’t cause it.

U.S. Army CID recruiting
