Colorado vehicle chain laws begin Saturday

DENVER (AP) - There may be record high temperatures outside, but the Colorado Department of Transportation is requiring large trucks to carry snow chains beginning Saturday.

Commercial vehicles weighing more than 26,000 pounds traveling Interstate 70 over mountain passes must carry sufficient chains to keep them from getting stuck until May 31.

Regional transportation director Tony DeVito says Colorado snows can occur as early as September and commercial trucks have to be ready.
