As the weather changes and snow starts to fall, police are reminding locals and visitors to carry chains when they enter Kosciuszko National Park.

Over the weekend there were multiple vehicles stopped and they weren't carrying chains.

Some were given warnings, others were given infringement notices.

Police say it's mandatory to carry chains in vehicles at this time of year, unless its a four wheel drive.

Fines in excess of $300 apply.

Police together with the RMS say they will be conducting regular chain bay inspections.
