I will stop using studs when they stop using them on public vehicles. must be good for the government but not good for the rest of us.

I use studded tires in winter, icy conditions. Many people drive in winter conditions without any preparation. I want to be safe as possible and studded tires have proven they are safer on ice & snow.

A good set of dedicated snow tires and 4/all wheel drive works just as good as studded tire and do not tear up the roads.

Having grown up in northern MN and spending plenty of winter driving in AK, they're simply not needed.

Lived here 42 years, never used studs. If you think you need better traction buy a good set of snow dedicated tires. If you're really worried about the condition of our roads, STOP using studs.

I am retired and have an all-wheel drive Mini. If the weather is that bad, I just stay home. Otherwise, my Mini handles it well. I would not go to the expense + trouble to buy and switch out tires.

I have my tires syped so I don't affect the pavement negatively and they work just fine; even on icy roads.

They do help on glare ice but if people would simply learn how to drive. I married a set of studs when I married the first time. I pulled the studs and have never used them since.

My Blizzak tires work awesome on all road surfaces, are nice and quiet and don't cost our local society dearly in the form of excessive pavement damage. What's not to like!

If you feel you need studs you should stay off the roads. I ride a motorcycle and the stud ruts in Central Oregon make picking a line very difficult.

With covid and the governor lowering standards for graduation, a standardized test is necessary . We need better educated students and graduates.

Absolutley especially important since lockdowns...our children's education has suffered, and we need to get back reading, writing, arithmetic and foster critical thinking once again.
