people die every year in traffic crashes around the world and injure up to 50 million. In fact, many of these casualties are preventable, as per WHO. Prioritizing safety includes, among others, periodical inspections.
One in four tyre related traffic accidents occurs as a result of illegal tyres, the tyre tread play a crucial role on the grip performance when driving.
On tyres below 3.5mm of tread, the average stopping distance is affected, increasing rapidly.
At the legal minimum of 1.6mm, the stopping distance can become 65% higher.
Low tread depth on tyres also significantly increases the risk of aquaplaning. In fact, on tyres with less than the minimum tread depth, the speed at which aquaplaning can start is reduced by 40%.
