In Pictures: Laois gardai ground truck with tyres as bald as Formula 1 slicks

A truck halted at a checkpoint in Laois had four bald tyres when stopped near the Tipperary border, according to Gardai.

The Laois Offaly Garda Division issued a statement after a operaration carried out on Wednesday, August 3 with the Road Safety Authority.

"Laois Roads Policing Unit conducting Checkpoints with inspectors from the RSA in Borris-in-Ossory today stopped a HGV with four completely worn tyres.

"Fixed Charge Notices issued and vehicle grounded until defects rectified," said the guards.

A chart published by gardai shows that a tyre that has between 0 and 2mms of thread requires immediate attention.

Pictures provided by Laois guards appear to show that the tyres had zero threading.
