Has anyone heard of putting zip ties on the tires to improve winter traction?

I would think that if you positioned the locking knob where it hit the ground it would act like a tire stud. BTW I like the crotch padding on the top bar of that bicycle.

Schwalbe stops to produce Iceman Spikes Scooter Tire due the EU restrictions.
I use Heidenau K58 mod. M+S Snowtex Rear tire, and I can't say that riding on the snow and ice is good idea. This tyre for cold tarmac only.

Yes, but I don't remember where it was... One of the scooter forums anyway. I seem to recall
that the author stated that they did wear out and did not last real long. Kind of worked.
