What works better than a law is when the insurance companies deny your claim when in a collision on snow/ice without severe service rated tires.

No. My understanding is Germany is that way. No idea about other locations.

Rules up here go by province. No rules in this province. I would guess, though that around 50% of people do use them around here.

The tires looked pretty aired up, wasn't really helping the cause there.
