Tyre tread statistics

A fascinating report courtesy of TyreSafe Admin National Highways Imperial College London looking at tread depth survey at the point of tyre replacement. The 2023 findings show an overall reduction in the number of illegal and borderline tyres at the point of replacement compared to 2016 but 16.7% of tyres were below the legal limit when replaced. The 2023 findings confirm the number of illegal tyres on Britain’s roads annually is potentially as many as nearly one-in-four vehicles – at just over 6.1 million per annum! How scary is that (especially during these wintry months)?

Lack of sufficient awareness among drivers of the need to carry out systematic and regular checks of their tyres is the most likely cause of so many tyres being illegal at the point of replacement.

You can find the full report and loads of useful free resources by clicking here.

There really is no excuse so if you are one of those drivers that hasn't checked their tyre treads within the last few days/weeks/month then go and do it before you next get in the car. If you are a fleet manager and want to record all your drivers' pre-drive checks then download our TakeAIM app.
