EFFECT OF RESIDUAL TREAD DEPTH OF CAR TYRES ON SAFETY

EINFLUSS DER RESTPROFILTIEFE VON PKW-REIFEN AUF DIE FAHRSICHERHEIT

THE LEGALLY PRESCRIBED MINIMUM TREAD DEPTH OF 1 MM FOR CAR TYRES IS INSUFFICIENT; THIS DOCUMENT PROVES THIS BY PRESENTING A PICTURE OF THE SUBJECT AND CONSIDERING THE VARIOUS TECHNICAL ASPECTS. THE WORK CONTAINS DETAILS OF COMMENTS MADE BY INSURERS, STUDIES CARRIED OUT BY INSTITUTES AND SOCIETIES, RESULTS OF TESTS UNDERTAKEN BY CAR ASSOCIATIONS AND SPECIALIST JOURNALS, OPINIONS OF ROAD SAFETY EXPERTS, THE HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF LEGISLATION AND STATISTICS ON WEATHER AND ACCIDENTS. IT IS PROPOSED THAT A TREAD DEPTH OF 2 MM SHOULD BE A MINIMUM REQUIREMENT.
