(a) Whenever snow, sleet, or freezing rain is falling or has fallen and such snow, sleet, or freezing rain is causing slippery or hazardous conditions upon the streets of the city, no person shall operate a motor vehicle on any street of the city in such a manner as to become stalled and impede traffic when such stalling is due to the failure of such person to equip the vehicle with effective tire chains or effective snow tread tires.
(b) No person shall operate a motor vehicle on any of the streets of the city under weather conditions as above set forth without equipping the vehicle with effective tire chains or effective snow tread tires when it is apparent that failure to so equip the vehicle will likely cause such vehicle to stall or impede traffic.
