A video has exposed a mechanic using a machine to carve new grooves into an old smoothened bus tire, making it appear new.
Rabat- The person taking the video asked the mechanic what he was up to. The mechanic said this way the bus will brake better and will save MAD 5,000, the price of a new tire.
The mechanic even acknowledged that doing so was illegal, but he did not stop.
The new-looking tire is an attempt to deceive road control authorities. If caught, the mechanic said he would just pay a bribe and that doing so would be normal in Morocco.
