I hope that they will have something to say about tyre damage caused by speed humps, including unseen wear on the inside walls of tyres, caused by straddling the humps so that the tyres ride along the bevelled edges.

Stats 19 data shows surprisingly few crashes caused by tyre failure - though that does not mean tyres don't fail. We have all seen treads shed by lorries, and I lost one, for no known reason, from a nearly new tyre at 70mph on the M4.
