How often do you check the tyre tread on your vehicle’s tyres? If the answer to that question is never then you’re like the vast majority of car owners. As much as the basic checking of oil levels and tyre pressure has become ubiquitous rituals of car ownership, tyre tread inspection often gets overlooked.
This is surprising, shocking even when you realise how often worn tyres are cited as a factor in traffic collisions. In recent years the Garda have stepped up their efforts in checking for worn tyres on vehicles. Dedicated checkpoints have been set-up that exclusively inspects tyre tread depth. Your everyday, law-abiding motorist may be completely unaware that their worn tyres are illegal to drive on. Drivers with worn tyres can be hit with on the spot fines and penalty points. That’s why John Collier & Sons are available to offer practical tips and advice on all things tyres.
