October is Tyre Safety Month
Once again, as the winter is fast approaching, N332 RoadWatch are supporting what was a U.K. based campaign focusing on one of the most crucial elements of a car, one which is so easy to check, and yet one which is so often neglected, as we join in with recognising that October is TYRE SAFETY MONTH.
TyreSafe’s latest campaign reveals it’s actually the summer months when Britain’s motorists are more likely to be involved in a tyre-related incident.
The key message for this year’s campaign, taken from tyresafe.org, is:
The need for the annual tyre safety campaign in October has once again been underlined by the research carried out by the TyreSafe team and the evidence collated. TyreSafe and tyre safety awareness depend on support to drive the change in attitudes needed to help reduce the number of tyre-related incidents on our roads.
Checking your own tyres is not as difficult as you might think, and we have created a short video that shows you how to perform some basic checks, recorded at the Bosch Service Centre at Autos Direct in San Miguel de Salinas.
You should perform these checks at least one per month, maintaining the tyre pressure when you do, and with just a few minutes of dedicated time, you could be saving a lifetime of worry, or worse.
Take a look at the video, which, as well as being on our websites, n332.es and RoadWatch.eu, is on YouTube where you can also subscribe to our channel, and see how easy it is. Of course, if you don’t want to check them yourself, it does mean getting your hands a little dirty, then pop along to Autos Direct in San Miguel and let one of the mechanics there check for you.
Autos Direct will also be bringing us some special offers right through this month, exclusive to N332 followers, so keep checking the website, n332.es, for those, or visit their website, autosdirect.es, and be sure to follow them on Facebook for their latest vehicles and news.
