He also said the fine for being caught was "only 100 CHF" so would be cheaper than buying them.....
If they even let you pass. If chains for AWD vehicles become mandatory expect the following:
- Police check and only those with mounted chains are allowed to pass.
- Road conditions were chains are not just a recommendation.

In other situation the police can simply forbid you to drive further unless chains are mounted.

The big fine and hassle comes when you crash the car w/o chains when chains had been mandatory. Not only is the fine in such a situation a bit higher (there is not set fine as it will be a citation instead a simple fine from the police) but also the insurance might nit cover you as it is considered gross negligence.
