Kwik Fit car insurance has moved to shock UK drivers with the unveiling of its Tyre Wall of Shame for 2010. This calendar presents shocking images of tyres that motorists have used to travel, and are some of the worst examples of tyre conditions seen across the country.
The underlining message behind this calendar is that drivers should not put themselves and other road users at such severe risk of accidents and as a result, car insurance claims.
Many of the images presented tyres with little or non-existent tread that would be rendered useless in the current wintry weather. Kwik Fit car insurance encourages drivers to take care of their tyres, and ensure that any with holes and ruptures are seen to with immediate action.
The message is being spread to drivers nationwide, as the tyres collected for the calendar were removed from vehicles during just one day begging the question, just how many other tyres are in such dangerous condition?
The legal minimum tread for tyres in the UK is currently 1.6mm. Ensuring that tyres meet this requirement and are inflated to the manufacturers recommended pressure will help drivers combat the icy roads this winter.
