Bald tyres e.t.c.

Construction and use offences

Bald Tyres etc

These are referred as “construction and use” offences.

They are a large group of
offences which are concerned either with the condition a vehicle is kept in or something that has been done to the vehicle which makes it unsafe.

examples are
1.bald tyres
2.defective brakes
3.defective steering
4.carrying an unsafe load
5.carrying too many passengers for the type of vehicle.

Defences usually turn on the facts of each case but do not accept it just because a police officer says it is unsafe , it usually requires expert knowledge.

Regrets won’t help but having my brief hopefully will.
