Just in case you’re not aware, there are new laws regarding driving on I-70 in the mountains.
This just went into effect in September after being signed into law by Governor Polis.   The law says vehicles need to either have snow tires or carry some sort of traction device (like chains or tire socks) at all times if they’re not four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicles .  The rule applies to the stretch of I-70 from Dotsero to Morrison and goes from 9/1 until 5/31 regardless of weather conditions.  I’m all for this new law!  You?
