Ali Hawthorne, a lawyer in our firm’s Consumer Fraud and Commercial Litigation Section, recently visited the news department of WAKA to talk about a tire safety event that was sponsored by the firm in cooperation with the Millbrook Police Department last month. Ali shared important and needed information about tire age, noting that tires have an “expiration date” of six years, after which manufacturers recommend tires be replaced. Even tires that have not been used may degrade over time due to factors like heat, so even if they look brand new, they may be unsafe.
There is a code on the tire that consumers can check to find out how old the tire is, but most people don’t know where it is or how to read it. The event was held on Saturday, June 13 in Millbrook. Sgt. Mike Speigner, a trained police officer, and Helen Taylor from our firm were on site to help educate folks on this important safety topic.
