Have your Fleet Drivers Checked their Tyres Recently?

Statistics released by the Highways Agency reveal that more than 11,000 tyre-related incidents took place on England’s motorways and major roads last winter.

The figures were unveiled in support of Tyre Safety Month, this October; a campaign organised by Tyre Safe, a not for profit UK tyre safety organisation that raises awareness of the dangers of worn, unsafe or defective tyres.

Incidents included punctures and blow outs and most took place between October and December.

“These figures prove how important it is to check tyres on a regular basis,” said Graham Hurdle, managing director of online driver profiling and e-driver training specialists, E-Training World.

“Many drivers sit in the comfort of their vehicles often forgetting that the only thing connecting them to the road is their tyres. Not checking them means they are gambling with their safety and that of other road users.

“Damaged or under/over inflated tyres also affect the way a vehicle drives and this has implications on cost as well as safety.”

E-Training World has an online driver training module on the subject of ‘Vehicle Safety Checks’ which can be trialed free of charge by any fleet manager wishing to assess the benefits of using e-learning to educate drivers.

“We would be delighted to send a login to any fleet manager who wishes to evaluate our systems,” said Graham. “Simply send us an email requesting a login and we will respond within 1 working day.”
