Tyre Safety Week

1 November 2006

This year's Scottish Tyre Safety Week campaign, arranged by the Tyre Industry Council last month, offered free tyre safety checks. Initial results from these checks have revealed that almost 30% of cars on the roads in Scotland required at least one tyre replaced because they were illegal or badly worn.
