Defective tires may be responsible for several thousand traffic accident deaths in the United States every year, as well as for countless injuries and inconveniences. This is according to statistics issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), though the true number of accidents that occur due to tire defects may be even higher, as the role of defective tires that cause or exacerbate car and other motor vehicle accidents is often masked by other contributing factors.
There are at least 2000 major tire lines on American roads today and, although companies like Goodyear, Firestone, and Bridgestone issue recalls regularly in order to remove defective or potentially defective tires from the roads, the system to remove them does not function effectively due to its complexity. Because of this, millions of tires that may be defective continue in use on our roadways. To put this in perspective, several years ago Firestone and Bridgestone recalled more than 15 million of their tires because of severe and dangerous defects.
