We’re being encouraged to check our tyres in Eastbourne.
The Road Policing Unit from Sussex and Surrey is supporting TyreSafe and are challenging us to carry out the 20p test. This is where you take a 20 pence piece and slip it into the grooves on your tyre. If the outer band of the coin disappears, the tyre meets at least the minimum legal tread depth. If it shows, it’s time to get the tyre changed.
Bald tyres are not only illegal, but dangerous.
