TyreSafe - Tyre Safety Month

While the need to carry out regular tyre checks may seem obvious an alarming number of Britain’s motorists are replacing their tyres only when they have already become illegal and dangerous. If they carried out #TyreChecks, this avoidable safety issue could be rectified.

  • Potentially over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres could be on Britain's roads in 2016
  • Tread depth has a decisive influence on the way your vehicle accelerates, brakes and corners
  • Safe tyres with legal tread depth will reduce the risks to you, your passengers and all road users
  • Driving on tyres with illegal tread depth not only reduces your safety on the road but also risks a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre

Facts & figures

TyreSafe's survey found that more than 27% of people replaced their tyres when they were already illegal, that could mean over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres on Britain's roads in 2016.

  • The total number of casualties resulting from tyre-related incidents over last five reported years* is 5,677 of which 989 people were killed or seriously injured, annually averaging 1135 and 198 respectively
  • Where casualties arise from an accident caused by a vehicle defect, tyres are the single largest contributory factor over the last five reported years*, accounting for 36% of the total
  • The estimated cost of tyre-related incidents to the economy over the last five reported years* is £416 million, averaging £83.2 million annually
  • Annually, 2.2 million cars fail the MoT due to tyre-related defects**
  • TyreSafe's survey in partnership with Highways England revealed potentially up to 10 million, or more than one-in-four cars and vans on Britain's roads, was driven with an illegal and dangerous tyre in 2016***

What our customers think

Called up with an emergency flat tyre. The guys sourced me one and got it up to the garage by the afternoon! Couldn’t have been more helpful and would recommend anyone wanting help with their car to check JS Motors!

Amy Sellers - April 2018

I booked my car in for an MOT in July 2017. I had bought the car from a small dealer who had MOT'd it the year before, with 'no advisories'. Gary called me through and showed me the potentially life-threatening faults on the car, and was visibly angry that I had been duped, putting mine and my young daughter's lives at risk. He spent considerable time with me not only on that day, but also shortly afterwards when I had found a replacement car. He said to tell him before buying and he would research the MOT history for me. This, he did. Since then, my trust has been entirely with JS Motors. My 'new' car has had minimal repairs carried out by Gary and his team; one such repair only required a tightening of a nut and a replacement bulb. I was charged a nominal fee for this, as they operate on an entirely honest basis. Their honesty is second to none that I have ever encountered. They are friendly, lots of fun, very efficient, and 100% trustworthy. I won't go anywhere else! *Customer advisory - they like cakes!* :-D
