Motorists have been reminded that traffic fines can be issued if you are found driving a vehicle with worn tyres.
This week, City Press ran an article on the poor maintenance of tyres, citing some of the implications if you are caught.
Fines4U, a company that specialises in the legal reduction of fines, says your vehicle is in actual fact not roadworthy if you continue driving with worn tyres.
Fines4U marketing manager Willem Le Roux says fines can vary and run up to R200,000 per tyre.
It depends on the specific charge code that they issue the fine on.— Willem Le Roux, Marketing manager - Fines4U
It is actually a significant safety issue when you drive with worn tyres. The legal limit for tyres is one millimetre tread depth, so if the tread depth goes below one millimetre, you are in contravention of the Road Traffic Act.— Willem Le Roux, Marketing manager - Fines4U
