wouldn't *count* on that -- :o :x
it is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that we cannot sincerely help another without helping ourselves in the bargain

I drive a Jeep Wrangler up any day it is snowy or icy.... and has the chance of being snowy or icy. I carry chains just in case they check. But the manual for the vehicle says that you can't use chains. I wonder if an officer would interpret this as a pass.... or a reason to turn me around.

When I had my Cherokee, I interpreted a requirement that 4WD vehicles must install chains as a strong suggestion that you stay off the road. And, like you, I carried chains in case they asked (and I only got asked once, at the chain check at Snow Valley on the way into Big Bear).
