Check Your Tyres as part of Tyre Safety Month
03/10/2013

An October campaign encouraging drivers to check their tyres has begun, supported by thousands of garages and other organisations across the UK.

The not for profit road safety group, TyreSafe, is encouraging drivers to make monthly checks on their tyre pressures to ensure they remain safe on the road. They’ve also stressed that driving on correctly inflated tyres helps them last longer and even reduce fuel bills.

“Tyres are the only thing on your vehicle that connects you to the road,” said Jonathan Mosley, director of sales and marketing at E-Training World. “This is why it is so vital to make regular checks.

“Yet many drivers rarely look at their tyres or they make infrequent checks, and are not only putting their lives at risk, but other road users too. They’re also potentially wasting money through inefficient motoring.”

E-Training World offers a wide range of web-based e-learning modules, one of which is on conducting vehicle checks.

“Our advice is that when you check your tyres as part of this campaign, take a few moments to check the rest of your vehicle too. Windscreen wipers, washer fluid, water, oil and lights are the key ones and these should be looked at each week.”

Results from a pan-European survey by a TyreSafe member involving more than 27,000 cars found that 78% were being driven on under-inflated tyres and more than a quarter (28.4%) had tyres that were either seriously or severely under-inflated.
