The Department for Transport’s (DFT) consultation on banning 10-year-old tyres closes on 1 September, so there's only around two weeks left to have your say.
The DfT is considering introducing regulations that ban the use of tyres aged 10 years and older on:
- heavy goods vehicles;
- heavy trailers;
- buses, coaches and minibuses.
The consultation follows a campaign by Frances Molloy, whose son Michael died in a coach crash caused by a 19-year-old tyre in 2012. Her work with the ‘Tyred’ campaign led to the consultation being launched.
