Famous tire producer Michelin recently conducted a survey of U.S. teens living in seven American cities. The sobering results: 42 percent are operating vehicles with unsafe tire tread, and 40 percent are operating vehicles with insufficient tire pressure.

That's a real problem, the company says, because improperly cared for tires could expose drivers to substantial risks. Citing an analysis by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Michelin says that, of 2.2 million U.S. accidents each year, almost 300,000 involve teen drivers and are tied to issues such as over- or under-inflated tires and worn treads.
