New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has signed legislation to prohibit the sale of unsafe used tires that pose a risk to New Jersey motorists.

Championed by Assemblywoman Shavonda Sumter and Sen. Nicholas Scutari, the new law imposes a fine on businesses selling tires that exhibit any one of several unsafe conditions, such as worn-out tread, visible damage or improper repairs.

“New Jersey has taken a bold step to protect motorists from high-risk used tires that have no business being put back into service on New Jersey roads,” said Anne Forristall Luke, U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association president and CEO. “We applaud Assemblywoman Sumter and Senator Scutari for their leadership on this important issue and we are grateful to Governor Christie for signing this legislation.”
