Earlier this year TyreSafe conducted the UK's largest survey of tyre tread depths at the point of replacement. The results showed that more than a quarter of motorists were replacing their tyres when they were already illegal – that equates to potentially nearly 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres on Britain's roads in 2015. A previous survey showed one in five motorists have NEVER checked their tyres.
TyreSafe have made substantial progress on tyre safety awareness since they started in 2006, and it's clear that we all still have a lot of work to do. This month is about asking motorists the direct question; 'When did you last do it'
Tread depth has a decisive influence on the way your vehicle accelerates, brakes and corners. Safe tyres with legal tread depth will reduce the risks to you, your passengers and all road users. Driving on tyres with illegal tread depth not only reduces your safety on the road but also risks a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre.
TyreSafe's survey found that more than 27% of people replaced their tyres when they were already illegal, that could mean 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres on Britain's roads in 2016. Potentially one in four vehicles could have an illegal and dangerous tyre in 2016.
