Tyre Safety Month

1 October 2011

Following two years of extreme winter weather and the prospect of another harsh season ahead, this October’s tyre safety month is focusing on driving in winter. Wet roads, cold temperatures, snow and ice can all contribute to potentially dangerous slip ups such as loss of grip, aquaplaning and longer stopping distances so it’s critical that your tyres are properly maintained and fit for the winter ahead.  More information including some excellent information about stopping distances is here.
