Jeff Martin: When snow falls..follow these instructions carefully....find a motel which has a pub and restaurant. Stay here until chains are not required
mwngw: TripCheck needs to upgrade their technology. If I'm leaving Klamath Falls in snow at 3:30 pm, and the last Tripcheck update is still listed as "9:40 am"...that's unacceptable. And this happens ALL WINTER! If the system is waiting for input from an OSP officer or a plow operator, I suggest ODOT needs to rethink its system. And does gravel cost so much that there is hardly any on the road? Come on, ODOT...give us a break out here. More updates....more gravel!!!!!!!
Sean Garland: Great, informative video for cable chain installation. Thanks so much.
darkknightsds: Is there a step-by-step list I can print out to keep in my car? Thanks, ODOT!
OregonDOT: Stay safe everyone.
Zack Lewine: Eugene is supposed to get bad this weekend. Thanks ODOT!
LutzBraintrust: Thanks, ODOT !
Stephen Pesis: Thanks Oregon DOT. This is a great video that helped remind me how to properly install chains. I'll be traveling through Northern Cal / Southern Oregon this weekend and will be better prepared because of your videos about chain installation and other considerations.
Boudica Slade: We got a LOT of snow here in Eugene Oregon today, very unusual for this time of year. Because I had nowhere I needed to go, I stayed home which is the best thing to do in such cases. I suddenly remembered that I bought chains several years ago. I tried putting them on once on the road back from Bend OR and failed horribly and proceeded (illegally and dangerously) without them, made it home and forgot about them. The above video showed me how EASY it is, especially if I practice in my garage, which I did. THANK YOU, ODOT ! !
BigBearKoala: Will I need tire chains if I am planning on driving through Oregon from Los Angeles to Seattle in December? Will US101 be a safer route compared to I-5?
OregonDOT: We just had to delete a comment because it violated our comment policy by using foul language. Comments are always welcome, but foul language is not.
Antoniocool86: She's sexy.
brieflybranden: Maybe because the diamond pattern damages the road more?
daddy69plus4: could have used it today......BLIZZARD
OregonDOT: Glad you found it helpful. Travel safely.
mmagliaro: Thank you thank you! Clear, to the point, and so useful!
racenuke: Yeah, chains are not meant to go past 30 MPH...
OregonDOT: @CABdosdos Not a good idea...
CABdosdos: Thanks Oregon DOT now I can street race even in the snow!
snowchainstool.eu: As an European I can't understand what makes you guys from the USA prefer cable tire chains. to the "chain" tire chains. I spent quite a lot of time working with tire chains lately, and IMAO "diamond pattern" tire chains are more durable and easier to put up than the cable ones. Nothing against the SCC, I think they're a great US company, I just don't get the cable concept.
