Technicians called on to sign up for tyre safety month


Tyresafe-campaignIndependent workshops are being urged to join the TyreSafe campaign that runs this October and can provide them with resources for pitching to motorists.

Registering for the campaign will allow technicians to access a host of resources from posters and kits for initiatives in workshops, as well as online banners, animations and a video to use on websites.

Stuart Jackson, Chairman of TyreSafe, said: “Making sure your tyres are properly inflated is an incredibly quick and easy job, but sadly one which many drivers fail to do regularly.

“For tyre safety month, we’re calling on as many road safety professionals to join the campaign as possible and help raise awareness about the importance of making sure tyres are properly inflated.”

A pan-European vehicle survey found that 78 percent of 27,000 cars examined were being driven on under-inflated tyres, with 28.4 percent of vehicles having seriously under inflated tyres.
