The measurement of effective friction at a serious crash location can be undertaken with a Police vehicle with new and good tyres, whereas crashed vehicles do not always have new and good tyres. It is sometimes presented in the Australian legal system that "rubber is rubber" and there is "no effective" variation between different tyre types. Testing was undertaken using one vehicle to only vary the tyre type; to compare and evaluate the differences between tyre types, pressures and using both conventional brakes and Anti-lock Brake System (ABS). The collected data demonstrates that there is a measurable and quantifiable variation between tyre types and that “rubber is not rubber”.
