JAMES. Oh dear, what a sheltered life we lead. Yes, oil can certainly pollute but only if it is released in exceptional and uncontrollable quantities. Tyre degeneration on the other hand comes nowhere near that critical amount and no amount of blindness nor deafness has any effect on the outcome.

@ CATHY; Unfortunitly, for some i guess, reality is alot more complex and the issue is not that straight forward. (oil produced from ancient rotted vegitation matter) - There has never been a difinite study or any scientific fact that oil is the direct resolt of "ancient rotting anything!" and ther is factors that sugest oil is material produced constantly by our planets inner interactions!Plus natural or not, everyone knows how toxic oil is and the effects it has on flora and fauna. Unless ofcourse your both blind and deaf

STUART. I would certainly hope that is the case, particularly in our inter-country connections with Australia. But it first has to be proved tyres actually do create an environmental health hazard when buried and NZ local by-laws were not contravened.

Whata a bunch of nit wit anti anything no- hopers. There is no evidence that tyres, a product of natural earthly resources (oil produced from ancient rotted vegitation matter) are any danger to the current environment. Tyres can only 'break-down' to what they were originally made of. So what's the problem?
