 Selected Issues in Passenger Vehicle Tire Safety

Summary

‚ÄčIn 2013, a total of 539 people died in tire-related crashes in passenger vehicles. Each year, about 33,000 passenger vehicle tire-related crashes occur, resulting in about 19,000 injuries. Most tire-related crashes are preventable and, although actions that could reduce tire-failure-related injuries and deaths are known, they continue to be debated rather than implemented.
