It is compulsory for 2 Wheel drive cars to carry chains on NSW Alpine National Park roads. 4 Wheel Drive and All Wheel Drive vehicles are not required to carry chains, but we do recommend these vehicles carry and use chains in heavy snow conditions. Police are constantly monitoring vehicles to check if chains are being carried. A $330 fine is applicable to 2wd cars not carrying chains in Alpine National Parks.
