Q&A - No Winter Tires, No Insurance Coverage?
Question: We have heard that there is a new law about winter tires. Tires now need to have the snow flake symbol on them or insurance will not cover us for a crash. Is this true?
Answer: I've asked ICBC about situations like this and their response is that not using winter tires when required to do so will not void your insurance coverage. What you will find is that the courts will find liability on your part if a crash occurs and this might reduce the amount that you receive for damages.
