Petition We want a law to ban tyres over 10 years old being used on buses and coaches.
Michael Molloy, aged 18, was killed travelling back from Bestival on The Isle of Wight. The coach Michael was travelling in crashed when a 19.5-year-old tyre had a catastrophic blow-out. Kerry Ogden, aged 23, and the driver Colin Daulby were also killed and many others sustained horrific injuries.
Old tyres kill. We call on the government to act now and ban the use of dangerously old tyres on passenger service vehicles (PSVs). Guidelines are the lowest form of intervention, we need legislation to stop negligent operators and save lives.
