Two Sefton private hire drivers suspended within minutes of one another for illegal tyre treads

Updated: Mar 4, 2020

Two Sefton plated private hire drivers have had their licences suspended today, 3 March, by Liverpool City Council Licensing for driving with tyres deemed to be under the legal tread limit.

Both drivers were found to be operating vehicles which had two front tyres dropping into the danger zone.

Highlighting the finds, Liverpool City Council Licensing took to social media to share images of the tyres in question.

Both vehicles were checked by the licensing team who were actively undertaking inspections outside Royal Hospital.

@lcc_licensing, said: "Sefton PHV suspended at Royal hospital earlier today for having two illegal front tyres fitted."

Operating a vehicle with tyres below the legal limit can see offenders hit with 3 penalty points per tyre, meaning this driver could face a total of 6 points in one hit.

@lcc_licensing added in relation to the second driver: "Sefton PHV at Royal Hospital drop off zone suspended due to two front tyres below legal limit."

In addition to the two drivers, another suspension was issued to a Liverpool private hire driver who did not have any door signs on his vehicle as required by licensing rules.
