TyreSafe continues part worn campaign with trading standards and media activities
TyreSafe has continued to raise awareness of the potential dangers of buying part worn tyres and encourage drivers to consider only buying new with joint activities with Trading Standards as well as in the media. This was most recently exemplified by a recent inspection carried out with Durham Trading Standards and the Sunday Mirror. The coverage was shared with the paper’s daily sister publication The Daily Mirror.
Once again, the results showed a lack of competency among used tyre traders and a high proportion of non-compliance with the regulations governing the sale of part worns. Six of the seven tyres were non-compliant with the only legal example being 18 years-old.
