Old Tyres Kill! – the key message of Tyred launch event

The Tyred Campaign – which seeks to address the issue of tyre aging is being launched on Friday 30 June, between 8:30 and 10:00 at Mercure Liverpool Atlantic Tower Hotel (Kilmore Suite), Chapel St, L3 9RE. Leaders from the tyre and transport industry as well as politicians and influencers from across the UK will be present.

The background to the campaign is the tragic story of Michael Molloy. In September 2012, a devastating coach crash caused three people to lose their lives, with many more seriously injured, as they travelled back from a music festival. The crash was caused by 20-year-old, second-hand tyres. 18-year-old Michael Molloy, a talented musician, was one of the victims and since his death, his mum, Frances, has campaigned to have the law changed so that no other families will endure the loss and suffering as hers have.

Many people would never imagine that tyres as old as 20-years could be legally used to transport children, families and the elderly on UK coaches every day. In short, the Tyred Campaign wants to see this practice come to an end.
