There is “no excuse to drive a licensed vehicle with two front tyres worn down to the chord and a collapsed suspension” warns licensing authority after private hire spot check uncovers unsafe vehicle.


The minicab in Nottingham was pulled over for routine spot checks in the city when officials saw the dangerously worn tyres.

In photos shared of the vehicle’s two front tyres, the cords under the surface of the tyres were clearly visible. According to sources the cords were exposed all around the tyre.

Nottingham’s Community Protections Taxi Enforcement Team posted photos and a message via social media saying: “Whilst out and about carrying out spot checks in the city came across this vehicle and both front tyres had core exposed all the way round the tyre.

“Dangerous for everyone.”

Nottingham City Council’s licensing team said: “Times are tough at the moment, but that's no excuse to drive a licensed vehicle with 2 front tyres worn down to the chord and a collapsed suspension. Good work by Nottingham’s Community Protections Taxi Enforcement Team’


“Prosecution by Notts Police and driver reported to his licensing authority.”
