ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability and Documentation (TREAD) Act enacted by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The issue came to the fore in recent days when Tech International Inc. voluntarily recalled 6 million snap-in tire valve stems. The company said the rubber portion of the valve stems may crack, causing air loss and tire failure. The TREAD Act just does not cover tire valves.
