ERJ staff report (DS)
London -- A UK-based online insurer has said a vehicle involved in an accident may be denied insurance cover if it is found to be using tyres with illegal tread depths.
In a press release, the company -- Confused.com -- said, " drivers could see their motor insurance claims denied and face fines of up to Â£10,000, simply by failing to take proper care of their tyres."
Gareth Kloet, Head of Car Insurance at Confused.com said: "Tyre maintenance may not sound like the most exciting topic on the planet but is important to basic road safety. If your tyres have too much air or too little this can wear the tread of tyres down quickly."
