A new Texas Senate bill will prohibit the sale of unsafe used tires.

The Rubber Manufacturers Association testified in Austin Wednesday afternoon in favor of Senate Bill- 459. The bill will prohibit any motorists from buying tires that are clearly unsafe: worn out, visible damage to the tread or improperly repaired.

The bill is also sponsored by Senator Jose Rodriguez who says this is a significant risk to motorist.
