Council fines for unsafe tyres has almost doubled over the last three years.
But questions have been asked about whether parking officers are qualified to judge whether a tyre is safe or not.
However, council says it is to make sure all vehicles are road worthy. NZ Transport Agency crash statistics shows tyre punctures, blowouts and worn tyres were contributing factors in a number of serious crashes – some involving fatalities.
Auckland and Rotorua councils issue infringements while Hamilton, Waikato and Whangarei do not.
