In both the fatal collisions the tyres that failed were fitted on the steering axle.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is not aware of any collisions that have occurred as a result of tyre failure due to its age for tyres fitted away from steering axles. In the absence of further evidence, the monetised benefits are estimated to be the same.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Neither Highways England, nor the Department, holds the statistics requested. The Department recently launched a consultation on proposals to ban tyres aged 10 years or older on heavy goods vehicles, heavy trailers, buses, coaches and minibuses. I encourage all interested parties to provide feedback on the consultation.</p><p> </p><p>Expert opinion from the Coroner’s inquests into two fatal road collisions and independent research commissioned by the Department provided evidence to support our proposals. The proposals in the consultation builds on existing roadworthiness guidance that advises against the use of tyres older than ten years on buses, coaches and heavy goods vehicles, except on a rear axle as part of a twin wheel arrangement.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The revision to the Guide to Maintaining Roadworthiness, introduced on 5 November 2018, included best practice guidance on managing the age of tyres fitted to heavy vehicles. It followed earlier Department for Transport advice, issued to bus and coach operators, in response to expert evidence provided to Her Majesty’s Coroner following the loss of three lives in a road traffic collision in 2012.</p><p> </p><p>In parallel, emerging evidence from Department for Transport research, suggested that age does influence the properties of a tyre. This emerging evidence, together with expert opinion, supported the use of the precautionary principle for the changes to the roadworthiness guidance.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to improving road safety, and ensuring the compliance of vehicles with safety regulations is important to reducing collisions and casualties.</p><p>The condition of tyres is checked at the annual roadworthiness inspection and if they do not meet the standards the vehicle will fail. Advisory notices are issued by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency’s assessors as part of a heavy vehicle annual test, and by MOT testers as to items the driver should monitor.</p><p>The Department for Transport will consult on requirements for a maximum age for tyres on heavy goods vehicles, buses, coaches and minibuses, and how to enforce these new requirements will be considered as part of this process.</p><p>In September 2017, a heavy goods vehicle travelling on the M5 suffered a tyre blow-out and crossed the central reservation and collided with oncoming traffic. At the recent Coroner’s inquest independent experts testified that the age of the tyre was a factor. Their analysis fits with the Department’s own emerging body of evidence.</p>
