DoI to clamp down illegal tyres

Fri, 16 Aug 2013

Motorists are being urged to make sure their vehicle tyres are fit for the road.

A recent routine check of vehicles parked along Douglas promenade found 15 had illegal tyres, which posed a danger.

The owners had their details taken and were asked to present their cars for further inspection within seven days.

If they fail to do so it will become a matter for the police.

These checks will continue around the Island with hefty fines in place for offenders.

Director of Highways Richard Pearson says there is a very serious reason behind the clampdown (audio):
