It is important that you make sure you do regular tyre safety checks to see if your tyres are roadworthy – this is required by law since they are the only part of your vehicle that touches the road. There can be severe consequences if you ignore the condition of your tyres and you put your own safety as well as the safety of others at risk.
You can be punished with a £2,500 fine for every tyre which is found to be illegal as well as points on your licence. This refers to the wear of your tyre, so if the tread is too worn or the tyre pressure is too low then it becomes a danger.
You can use tread indicators on your tyre and regularly check tyre pressure to avoid this, but if you feel the handling of your car is different or braking takes longer to stop the car then these are tell-tale signs of wear.
