With winter now well on its way, it is more important than ever to ensure your tyres are well-maintained. Tyres with insufficient tread depth provide poor contact with slippery roads, and can be a major hazard both to you and other road-users.
What is the law?
UK law requires the correct tyre size and type is fitted to all vehicles, and that tread depth does not decline to an unsafe level. Car, van and LCV drivers must have a tread depth of 1.6mm across the central 3/4 of the tyre around its entire circumference.
Drivers who fail to comply are liable to a fine of up to £2,500 and three points on their licence for each tyre.
