Tyre Labelling

18 January 2012

We will be working closely with the organisers of the Campaign for Better Tyres. The campaign web site has many useful tips for managers on how to improve the energy efficiency, noise and safety performance of vehicles by looking after your tyres properly.

The campaign will also help to raise awareness of the new tyre labelling for passenger cars and light trucks will take effect from 1 November 2012 under European Regulations. This new regulation will bring a major advance in consumer information on tyre safety (wet braking) and the tyre’s impact on the environment (rolling resistance and external noise).

For more information about tyre labelling visit Driving for Better Business champion Michelin’s web site.

Further information and an animated film is also available on RoadSafe sponsor Continental's web site
