Motorists urged to remember tyre safety

JonathanOctober 1, 2013

UK Carline takes the safety of our customers as a top priority, whether this is by ensuring that you have the highest quality vehicle when you leave with a car leasing contract, or by giving out advice about how to drive safely in your new model.

A nationwide campaign has now started which urges people across the UK to ensure that their tyres are of a safe standard. Although UK Carline make sure that each of our cars are in top quality before they leave our showroom, checking that you know an unfamiliar car is safe is important, especially if you have taken a long-term car leasing contract out.

October is Tyre Safety month which means that drivers across Britain are being encouraged to check the safety and quality of their tyres, and are being warned about the dangers of not doing this.

This is especially important as the cold weather draws in, making the UK’s roads more dangerous, especially if your vehicle isn’t in top condition.

TyreSafe, which has launched the campaign, is wanting drivers to make monthly checks on their tyre pressures to ensure that they are safe on the roads. The initiative is being supported by thousands of garages and motoring groups across the country in a bid to help drivers become more aware of the possible dangers associated with bad quality tyres.

“As the nights start to draw in and the weather deteriorates, it’s essential that drivers ensure that their tyres are safe and fit for the winter ahead,” explained Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe.

“The most basic inspection, which should be carried out at least once a month, is simply checking that your tyres are properly inflated.

“Of course, tread depth and tyre condition are also important but to help drivers make these assessments, thousands of garages will be offering free safety checks throughout the month.”

Although many of these tasks are simple to do, drivers across the UK often neglect them or don’t even know that it’s important to carry out the routine to ensure their cars are safe.
