Have your say

GARAGE manager Matt Dickinson said he would offer free safety checks for anybody concerned about the tread on their car tyres.

He said: ‘We’d rather check a tyre and send a customer away because there’s still life left in what they have, than have that driver take a risk.’

Research commissioned by Protyre showed that 42 per cent of motorists don’t know what is the legal minimum tyre tread depth is, and more than one in 10 (13 per cent) think their garage is legally responsible for checking the condition of their car tyres, not them.
