Ikpi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Calabar, that fairly used tyres had been found to be responsible for majority of road crashes on the highways.

It is highly dangerous to use fairly used tyres on the highways, they are not durable and cannot withstand pressure,’’ he said.

According to him, many of the road crashes are as a result of burst tyres unlike new tires that are safer and more durable.

Ikpi said that tyres were manufactured with chemicals that expire after a period of time and when it expires, it’s prone to being punctured easily by sharp objects on the road.
