These figures do not surprise me one little bit ?

So, next time you are one of the “sardines” driving up and down British motorways, think about the one in five cars that are passing you.

I know that it does not work out quit like that but I think you have got the gist of what I mean.

As a tyre guy all my life. So, I am sad enough to look at almost every car tyre that I pass. Even on a morning when I walk my dogs, then I look at the state of the tyres on the cars parked up.

I wish I could spray them bright red or yellow so to catch the eye of the drivers?

Drivers just seam oblivious to  the condition of their cars tyres. Organisations like Tyresafe.org are trying to make drivers aware of the state of their tyres and bloggers in the tyre trade keep on harping on about it. But I fear that it is all dropping on deaf ears.

Comparison site Confused.com said it conducted 1,000 vehicle spot checks up and down the country and found that 21 per cent had at least one tyre that need to be replaced.
