I am really surprised that this thread had so little traction. The conviction was a real travesty of justice. Here's Bob Dylan singing "Hurricane" with the lyrics quoted above.

I always thought that in JoeeeJa you could get a ticket for going 65 in a 65. In a BMW. Times must be changing. ;)

I don't know if the tire shop was "negligent". I don't know if the tires were "wrong". I don't know if they were "dangerous". Does that answer your questions? The only thing which matters is that...
