TyreSafe - Tyre Safety Month

While the need to carry out regular tyre checks may seem obvious an alarming number of Britain’s motorists are replacing their tyres only when they have already become illegal and dangerous. If they carried out #TyreChecks, this avoidable safety issue could be rectified.

  • Potentially over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres could be on Britain's roads in 2016
  • 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

 

Facts & figures

TyreSafe's survey found that more than 27% of people replaced their tyres when they were already illegal, that could mean over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres on Britain's roads in 2016.

  • The total number of casualties resulting from tyre-related incidents over last five reported years* is 5,677 of which 989 people were killed or seriously injured, annually averaging 1135 and 198 respectively
  • Where casualties arise from an accident caused by a vehicle defect, tyres are the single largest contributory factor over the last five reported years*, accounting for 36% of the total
  • The estimated cost of tyre-related incidents to the economy over the last five reported years* is £416 million, averaging £83.2 million annually
  • Annually, 2.2 million cars fail the MoT due to tyre-related defects**
  • TyreSafe's survey in partnership with Highways England revealed potentially up to 10 million, or more than one-in-four cars and vans on Britain's roads, was driven with an illegal and dangerous tyre in 2016***

What our customers think

100% Recommended great service and great prices

Aidan Bainbridge - July 2017

I cannot recommend these guys highly enough. Having been told by another garage that I absolutely needed a new Cat to get my car through the emissions section of MOT, I took it to MSC. They found they only had to change a gasket which meant spending a fraction of the cost just before Christmas. They have restored my faith in human nature! Thank you sooooooo much.

Suzanne Hart - December 2016

Thanks for my MOT today guys. It failed due to a problem with the exhaust and a side light. The exhaust was still under guarantee by another garage. When that was rectified, MSC redid the emissions test. It passed! To top it all, they very Gentlemanly replaced the side light *FOR FREE*. I left with a new MOT and a big smile.
