Does Road Legislation have a penalty for someone intentionally deflating my tyres?

Question:

This past weekend my wife visited her sister in … Her sister is parking at someone’s house overnight as she stays in flat. Her sister informed the house owner that her sister will be visiting.

However, on Sunday morning my wive’s tyres were deflated by the individual who had been informed prior to that.

She was forced to drive with the car deflated for about 10-15km on her way to work. Is there a law that prohibits such activity? Can we open a case against such?

Answer:

No the National Road Traffic legislation does not cater for this. The only offence could be malicious damage to property but you will need to prove who was responsible for it.
