By law in CA you are required to carry chains in the mountains when snow is likely. Of course 90% of SUV owners do not even own chains! I have never been asked to prove that I am carrying chains.

It is very rare on the major highways that chains are required on 4WD and the road is still open. However, there are places like the road to Badger Pass in Yosemite where they frequently require chains at the end of the day to drive down - I have known people to be trapped in the park because they are not allowed to drive down the hill!

VTM-4 is only available in 1st and 2nd gears and only then if you are stuck and need to lock the differential. It could do damage if used incorrectly.
