TYRE DAMAGE AS A CAUSE OF ACCIDENTS

REIFENSCHAEDEN ALS ORSACHE VON VERKEHRSUNFAELLEN

Roughly half of all accidents caused by faults in vehicles can be attributed to defective tyres. The study reported is concerned with the evaluation of tyre damage and also of tests carried out at the Technical Institute in Munich. It is established that modern tyres are no more susceptible to damage than tyres used hitherto, but that the type of damage is different. If the number of defective tyres is to be reduced, tyres need to be significantly better maintained than they are at present. /TRRL/
