Man jailed for worn tyres!

Man jailed for worn tyres!

March 4, 2022

A car owner has been jailed for two and a half years and banned from driving for nearly four and a half years after he allowed a friend to drive his vehicle knowing that it had dangerously worn tyres.

Whilst as a passenger in the car his friend lost control in wet weather causing a head-on fatal crash.

Upon investigation, it was found that the MOT report stated that the rear tyres were close to their legal limit and a further 6000 miles had been driven without them being replaced.

This case highlights the legal liability of the vehicle’s owner, including employers and the severe consequences via the courts.  Vehicles must be properly maintained, MOT’d and any warnings/advisories upon the vehicle inspection reports are acted upon.

It’s also a reminder that drivers should be completing regular checks before they use private and company vehicles.
