For more than a decade, consumer advocates have argued for improved standards to help consumers tell the age of vehicle tires and determine when a tire might be "expired."
However, our Daytona car accident lawyers understand they may be arguing for even longer, after the National Highway Traffic Safety Association declined to enact new regulations to address the issues.
The agency issued a report, summarizing a dozen years of research and asserting that Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 139 was sufficient to protect consumers. This was the standard enacted in 2006 that has resulted in enhanced tire safety standards and improved monitoring and alerts to driver when a tire is not properly inflated.
