Police Warn Drivers to Check Tyres or Face Fine

Following a serious Road Traffic Accident in Telford this month, Police are reminding drivers that it is their own responsibility to check the condition of the tyres on their vehicles.

The two-car collision resulted in the emergency services being called, and police investigators were quickly able to spot the cause of the accident – bald tyres. This will now result in the driver of the defective vehicle receiving a possible £200 fine and 6 penalty points on their licence. Furthermore, the driver’s insurance company may also refuse to pay out as the car was not classed as ‘in legal condition’.

If you’re unsure about the condition of your own vehicle tyres, don’t risk being the driver who causes an accident. We offer a free tyres check to customers in Neath Port Talbot who visit us, and can then advise if the tyre needs replacing.
