Worth keeping a close check on your tyres:
More than 18 million UK drivers are estimated to be on the road with illegal tyres – a figure that's trebled in the last seven years. Surveying over 100,000 tyres each year, tyre retailer Micheldever reports a continuing rise in the number of tyres breaching the 1.6mm tread limit.
The survey also found 40 per cent of motorists do not know what the legal limit is, and 13 per cent believe tyre maintenance is the responsibility of the garage and not the owner.
These numbers are in stark contrast to the increasingly safety conscious nature of the UK motorist. More than half of car buyers say that ABS is an essential feature on their new cars, a third say they look for traction control and 60 per cent insist the car comes with quality tyres.
