In one of the largest studies of its kind, the Road Safety Authority of Ireland concluded that defective tyres were a significant factor in a large percentage of fatal car collisions.
The defects identified as contributing factors were worn threads, ill-fitting tyres, and tyres that were under or over-inflated.
The study, which analysed traffic collisions between 2008 and 2012, found that 111 people lost their lives and 30 were seriously injured in collisions were vehicle defects were identified as a contributory factor. Of these vehicle defects, issues with the car’s tyres were one of the main vehicle defects identified.
So what can we learn from these grim facts? Well, it’s clear that all motorists need to be conscious of their tyres.
