American English confuses those used to British English
In British English TYRE is a wheel-covering and TIRE means growing weary.
In American English TIRE is used for both.
Column of tyres
Columns of used tyres or worn-out tyres are a common sight on the roadside when you are travelling on the national highways in India.
They are there to indicate to the traveller that there is a shop nearby and can be of immediate help if there were any tyre related problems.
Tyres are both good and bad and it all depends on how you use them and the way you dispose of them once they completed their life.
Life without tyres
One can’t imagine a life without tyres.
We don’t even want to think about this.
Earlier tyres were vulcanised tyres and further technological improvements led to pneumatic tyres.
I am not going into the details of how it’s made etc.
Advantages of tyres
Tyres help us for a quick and comfortable trip.
Because of the travel from place to place you can enjoy the life (workwise & leisure wise).
Many are memorable and you cherish your experience with your loved ones.
Disadvantages of tyres
My friend, tyres are the plastic polluters, and this thought never strikes your mind.
A tyre is a combination of rubber and plastic.
Added to this ‘tyre burning’ happening in many parts of the world because of so many reasons, one being during protests.
What is the purpose of burning tyres during a protest?
I don’t know.
It’s said that tyre burning releases very harmful chemicals.
How can simple driving on the road cause pollution?
I know what you are thinking.
You are waiting to say that exhaust emission is the culprit.
My friend, it’s nothing compared to pollution from tyre wear.
Do you have any idea about tyre particles?
Just check this link to know as to what are all the ways we can suffer pollution because of tyre usage.
Underdeveloped countries are said to be a dump yard for all unwanted things from the highly developed world and sadly these products in the underdeveloped world can pollute the entire world because they lack the technology of safe disposal.
So the circle is complete!!
