The 60 degree latitude line crosses Alaska south of Ninilchik and north of Happy Valley and just north of Yakutat in the Southeast. These communities, with the exception of the Sterling Highway, were subject to the April 15 deadline. The Sterling Highway that runs across the Kenai Peninsula falls under the normal May 1 deadline.
The extension should provide all motorists that additional margin of safety on lingering winter roads. This extension should also show that the State of Alaska is concerned enough to remain flexible in deadlines to best ensure the safety on roads.
Those driving with studded tires after the deadline could be issued a correctable ticket with a $50 fine. Fee schedules for various municipalities may be different.
