According to Hart, “A lot of that is something the consumers don’t have control over because they don’t know that they’re driving with a tire that’s subject to a recall.” This calls into question the system currently in place to notify drivers of these defective and dangerous products.

Tire recalls are only sent to customers who contact the manufacturer after installation and individually register the tires. The NTSB found that this information is not readily given to consumers – an oversight that has placed thousands of people at risk for serious injury.
