National Transportation Safety Board To Host Symposium Over Tire Safety

The National Transportation Safety Board will host a symposium over two days in December to gather information and expert opinion on the causes of tire disablement, the role of safety recalls and consumer awareness, ongoing safety-related initiatives, and advances in tire technology. The symposium, which is free and open to the public, convenes Dec. 9–10 in Washington, D.C.
The symposium will be chaired by NTSB Board Member Earl Weener and invited subject matter experts will present on safety issues at panels. Presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer period to allow NTSB staff to follow up on points made during the presentations and take other tire safety topics into consideration.
The symposium panels will include:

• Tire Disablement and Vehicle Dynamics
• Identifying and Analyzing Tire Disablement-related Crashes
• Tire Registration and Recall
• Tire Aging and Service Life
• Advances in Tire Technology
• Tire Maintenance and Consumer Awareness

According to the NTSB, the primary focus is on passenger vehicle and light truck tires, although many issues apply to all pneumatic tires. The NTSB will publish a transcript of the symposium, and said that it may use information gathered from the symposium to develop safety recommendations that, if implemented, could reduce the incidence of tire disablement-related crashes.

The public can view the symposium in person or by live webcast on the NTSB’s website.

The symposium will be hosted at the NTSB’s Board Room and Conference Center, located at 429 L’Enfant Plaza, S.W., Washington, D.C. No preregistration is required.
