Tyred is a campaign aiming to prevent deaths on UK roads caused by old tyres.
Tyred was established following the deaths of several people in a 2012 road accident, caused by a coach which had 20-year-old tyres. Tyred is now working to change UK law to prohibit the presence of tyres older than 10 years on coaches and minibuses.
