The bald tyres in the picture are a sample of the terrible state of tyres that we are now removing from cars. We have always wondered what happens if a car has a crash and it has illegal tyres fitted.? Is the cars insurance void. In my opinion the cars insurance will be void and therefore the driver will be prosecuted. The article from artyapt blog throws a little light on the matter…”The shocking fact discovered by a current review run by a car insurance contrast site is that more than half of the people in the UK dont know what the legal minimum tread depth is due to their tyres! Whether you are the driver or the dog owner, the legality of your tyres is your duty. If your found with a tyre below the appropriate tread depth,1.6 mm,you will be fined around £2,500.
