Campaigners calling for laws on over age tyres
Tyre Campaigners have been calling for tougher legislation on the sale and fitting of over age tyres.
The campaign has hit the spotlight after three people were killed in a coach crash caused by the blowout of a second hand tyre that was dated as over 19 years old.
Currently there is no law preventing the fitting of tyres because of their age which cases like this prove is a dangerous endeavour. Worryingly various garages happily sell and fit part worn tyres, many of which do not meet legal requirements. In fact a recent survey carried out by Trading Standards revealed that 90% of part worns sold in the UK are illegal.
With tragic yet avoidable accidents highlighting the need for tougher laws, there is no advantage in purchasing used tyres. In fact it proves the potent dangers of the used tyre market. With brand new tyres from just £25 there is no cost saving in part worns plus you can be assured you are driving on safe and legal tyres.
