The appellant was involved in a crash while driving a garbage truck in the course of his employment. The trial court rendered judgment in a suit against Southern Tire Mart LLC in favor of the tire installer. The restriction on retreaded tires set forth in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations would not apply to a garbage truck, particularly in light of the fact that the only allegation was that the tires were retreaded. The trial court's judgment is affirmed. El Paso Court of Appeals, No. 08-12-00091-CV, 11-07-2012.
