Why are my tyres wearing more on the inside?

I own a Suzuki Vitara and the Suzuki technician reports that all four tyres are wearing on the inside more than the rest of the tyre. He recommends wheel alignment immediately. As my car has only done 17,000 miles is this a fault with this model of car or is it quite normal?

It might be from straddling speed cushions instead of driving one wheel over, one on the flat. Straddling tears the inner shoulders of the tyres to bits.
