Snow chains can be an absolute essential when traveling in New Zealand during the winter months. As a result of motor vehicles being caught without chains in sudden snowfalls over winter in the Queenstown Lakes District and Milford Sound, a bylaw has been introduced.
The bylaw states, "At the direction of an enforcement officer or authorised officer, the driver of any vehicle may be required to fit snow chains to such vehicle on any road, and no person shall drive, or direct or allow such vehicle to be driven without such snow chains fitted."
Please be aware of this bylaw if you are going to be travelling in these areas during the winter period.
Non-compliance will result in a $150 fine for Queenstown Lakes District and $750 for Milford Sound.
Snow chains can be added for as little as $10 a day, up to a maximum of $40 per hire.
This video from Cardrona Alpine Resort shows you how to fit them:
