Cracking the Code: Are the tires on your school bus safe?
When your child gets on the school bus each morning you want your child to be safe. But safety experts Sean Kane and Matt Wetherington said your child could be riding on an invisible hazard: an old tire that looks okay on the outside but may actually be dangerous. "Tires age dangerously and they age from the chemical process called oxidation." Wetherington said. Think of an aging tire like a rubber band. When its new, it stretches just fine but when its old it cracks and pops. "When you have a tire that has aged even if it hasn't been put into service, the material degrades over time," Kane said.
