Police have launched a crackdown on illegal tires on vehicles in Beverley and across East Yorkshire. Officers warned that motorists found to have defective tread could be fined up to £100. Sgt Will Knapp told Beverley FM that it’s not just about worn tires, but also ensuring they are inflated to the right pressure, and do not have defects such as bulges or cuts – which increase the risk of blowouts at higher speeds resulting in a serious loss of control. He added that officers will be at locations across the region throughout the rest of the month to educate members of the public, enforce the law and, where necessary, prosecute.
