I think thats the problem in England, no one has snow chains or snow tyres, so they are stuck. It would all be solved if people bought some road chains.
In my province those are illegal...as well as studded tires. Other provinces in Canada you can use them where there is more snowfall or high mountains. As I think of it, if you are on a gravel road in a rural area, no one will bother you. But they are illegal because if a lot of people had them they would completely fuck up the roads in a season. Probably end up resurfacing roads every year. From snowfalls and snow removal, winters really fuck up the roads enough as it is. My province already spends a lot on them....compared to Quebec anyway...their roads are garbage but they get a lot more snow than we do
