A taxi driver was caught with an illegal tyre on the A41 in Hertfordshire.
Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit stopped the private hire vehicle yesterday evening (May 27).
Police say the tyre was that far below the legal tread depth, you could see the canvas.
According to officers, the driver was none the wiser and “couldn’t see what the issue was”.
A police spokesperson said: “After having stopped this private hire taxi, it became apparent that the front tyre was below the legal tread depth.
“So far below that the canvas was showing.
“Driver couldn't see what the issue was, they were reported and prohibition was issued.”
