Tyre Safety Month achieving results.
As Tyre Safety Month gets into full swing, roadside checks conducted by Cumbria Constabulary last weekend (6th and 7th October) have highlighted the dangerous condition of tyres that some drivers continue to drive on.
One particularly frightening example was found on a car being driven by a young driver, who had worn the tyre beyond the legal limit, down to the carcass and even had parts of the metal casing poking out of it.
205 people were killed or seriously injured in a tyre related accident during 2011.
