Tyre Safety Month

10 June 2009

RoadSafe will be supporting Tyre Safety Month in September being led by our partner TyreSafe.

Following recent research which shows that 90% of British motorists don't know their vehicle's correct tyre inflation pressure we will be calling on all businesses to ensure that their company car drivers regularly check their tyres for correct inflation and pressure.

Bike Tyre Safety Month in April was deemed a success – it reached out to all motorcyclists, new and experienced, to raise awareness of the importance of tyres in road safety.
