4 tyres scrapped as they have been in an accident #saynotopartworn #hometyre @tyresafe @TyresNTDA @govuk https://t.co/9NCfyVD2iA
eric roberts's insight:

This tweet shows what should be done to old tyres that could be used to sell as part-worns. Companies that collect these tyres and sort them for resale into the illegal part -worn tyre market. All tyre dealers should drill the side-walls of any tyres that could be sold as part worns. This drilling will make them useless.
