A SPEEDING motorist who was caught driving a car with two bald tyres is set to pay a heavy penalty.

In addition to receiving points for each of the bald tyres, the motorist will receive 2 penalty points for an offence under Section 51(a) of the Road Traffic Act - driving with reasonable consideration for other road users.
