One-in-six motorists puts safety at risk by driving on Worn Tyres Dangerous?
PENNY-PINCHING Irish motorists are throwing caution to the winds when it comes to their tyres.
Worn tyres problem not just Irish motorists.
So,this article in the Irish Independent. Highlighting the problem in the UK as well as Ireland. Significantly, in a recent survey carried out by Micheldever Tyres.
Here in the UK. Checking the tyres outside of a a primary school. Methodically, the cars were inspected outside of a a school in the South of England. So by showing the children how to check the tread depth of tyres.
Consequently, the kids then checked their parents and teachers car tyres . Of course, as they came and left school. Somberly, it was found that most of the cars had at least one illegal tyre on their vehicles. Strikingly, in my opinion this is reflected all over Britain and Ireland. Undoubtedly, this is a terrible state of affairs regarding road safety ! Let alone the fact that kids are been driven around in cars with Dangerous worn tyres.
Dangerous tyre becoming a huge problem !
We retailers see this type of thing all day long. Subsequently, I have started to take pictures of the worst examples of badly Worn Tyres . However, they were so many of them that I had to stop. The tyres in the picture are just a small example of what I am referring to including the part worn tyres fitted to a taxi.
So since writing this post then nothing has really changed! Dangerous and un-regulated part worn tyres are sold all over the UK. Legislation does not seam to have had any effect on this practice although Tyresafe are always raising awareness to the tyre buying public.
