Safety Body Highlights Dangers of Used Tyres

Tyre safety organisation TyreSafe has published new promotional material designed to highlight the potential dangers to motorists of buying used tyres.

According to recent investigations by the safety body, 98% of part worn tyres were sold illegally, and around a third were damaged or non-compliant to a dangerous level.

"The sale of dangerous and illegal part worn tyres continues to be a great concern to us," explained Stuart Jackson, chairman TyreSafe. "We've been working hard over the last few years to raise awareness about this issue, and these latest materials are part of our ongoing investment into tackling the problem.”

TyreSafe is also working with Trading Standards to help educate its officers on the issues involved and to assist in local investigations into illegal worn-tyre sales.
