Good news for unsuspecting motorists
In one of the first cases of what appears to be a national clampdown on part worn tyre traders, Lincolnshire based Moss Tyres proprietor Luke McKenzie has been found unanimously guilty by jury on 16 accounts of being in possession to supply dangerous products to consumers.
Specifically relating to the sale of unsafe used tyres, the defendant faces up to 12 months in prison along with a £20000.00 fine.
Part worn tyre retailers have grown in numbers across the UK since the start of the recession - preying on the innocence of motorists who believe they would be buying a safe product at a discounted price. The reality in many cases however is that unsuspecting motorists are simply buying discarded tyres that are unfit for use for varying reasons and actually paying a higher price per usable mm of tread.
Motorists should always ask themselves a very simple question before considering the purchase of used tyres: - "when have you ever needlessly replaced the tyres on your car?" The answer is ALWAYS "never". This applies to motorists the world over - Germany included! Tyres are almost only ever replaced when they are worn out, old and perished, or have suffered unrepairable damage.
