Any damage to the tyre, is indeed criminal damage.Bluesnose1812 wrote: ↑Sun May 22, 2022 8:55 amPublished 'instructions' are just a smokescreen so they can say no damage was done. As the other thread showed, the act of deflating is criminal damage. They are better off spiking the sidewalls.crxvtec wrote: ↑Sat May 21, 2022 11:19 pm
The thought did occur, however given the instructions on their website to let a small hard object do the deflating, they'd be done and off in prob <15 seconds so it'll be a very slim chance of catching them in the act unless you were continually watching the vehicle.
That’s why their site gives instructions on what to do and how to do it. So they don’t get busted for their actions.
Sorry but whoever you are quoting from the Met Police saying it is not criminal damage is wrong. Letting a car tyre down regardless of whether the structure of the tyre is actually damaged is criminal damage. Criminal damage does have to be permanent.
