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>In June 2019 the Department launched a public consultation seeking views on a proposed ban on tyres aged 10 years and older from heavy goods vehicles, heavy trailers, buses, coaches and minibuses.</p><p> </p><p>At the same time, the Department published research that explores the link between age and tyre integrity. Although the research is not statistically conclusive, it suggests that corrosion, which can affect the tyre’s structure, is more likely to be found in older tyres. Investigations into two fatal collisions involving heavy vehicles concluded that tyre failure occurred as a result of structural deterioration due to age.</p><p> </p><p>We are not aware of any scientific studies that specifically explore the statistical risk of tyre blow-outs for heavy goods vehicles or coaches in each year after manufacture.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
