In a special investigative report on tire safety adopted by the National Transportation Safety Board, the agency found that the way tires are currently registered and recalled is ineffective. It also said there is insufficient guidance by the tire and automotive industries on the risks associated with tire ageing.
The NTSB undertook the special investigation following probes into four tire-related accidents in Florida, Louisiana, Arizona and California that killed 12 people and injured 42 others. The NTSB then held a symposium on passenger tire safety in December to gather information and expert opinions on the factors that contribute to tire failures that lead to more than 500 deaths in the U.S. every year.
