Tyres were slashed on more than 20 vehicles during a spate of night-time attacks last week causing “financial misery and inconvenience” to the victims.

Around 23 vehicles had their tyres damaged in the Kingswood area of Bristol when the vandals struck under the cover of darkness.

One witness reporting seeing the occupant of a Corsa-type car stop and lean out near one of the cars, which was attacked in Cross Street.

In a separate incident, another five vehicles had their tyres damaged while parked in Oaklands Road, Mangotsfield, between Tuesday and Wednesday.

One victim who had two cars attacked, hit out at the vandals. She said: “They think it is cool and they are showing off to their mates. They don’t think of the financial misery and inconvenience they are causing other people.”

An Avon and Somerset police spokesman said: “This is not a prank – this sort of damage to car tyres could easily result in a driver losing control of the vehicle.

“Those responsible are reckless to the fact that people could be hurt as a result of their actions.”
The victims of tyre slashing vandals can ease their headache and the strain on their wallet by turning to etyres to replace their tyres.

Etyres offers a mobile fitting service so the tyres are fitted at a location of the customers choice, which means they don’t have to worry about getting their vehicle to a garage or depot.

And because etyre doesn’t have expensive depots to run its overheads are low and the savings are passed on to customers in the form of lower prices – up to 40% cheaper than the leading high street depots.
