TyreSafe - Tyre Safety Month

While the need to carry out regular tyre checks may seem obvious an alarming number of Britain’s motorists are replacing their tyres only when they have already become illegal and dangerous. If they carried out #TyreChecks, this avoidable safety issue could be rectified.

  • Potentially over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres could be on Britain's roads in 2016
  • Tread depth has a decisive influence on the way your vehicle accelerates, brakes and corners
  • Safe tyres with legal tread depth will reduce the risks to you, your passengers and all road users
  • Driving on tyres with illegal tread depth not only reduces your safety on the road but also risks a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre

 

Facts & figures

TyreSafe's survey found that more than 27% of people replaced their tyres when they were already illegal, that could mean over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres on Britain's roads in 2016.

  • The total number of casualties resulting from tyre-related incidents over last five reported years* is 5,677 of which 989 people were killed or seriously injured, annually averaging 1135 and 198 respectively
  • Where casualties arise from an accident caused by a vehicle defect, tyres are the single largest contributory factor over the last five reported years*, accounting for 36% of the total
  • The estimated cost of tyre-related incidents to the economy over the last five reported years* is £416 million, averaging £83.2 million annually
  • Annually, 2.2 million cars fail the MoT due to tyre-related defects**

What our customers think

What a fantastic company called up ordered two tyres for my Mini went in the next day to have them fitted. The lad who was to fit my new tyres advised me that my tyres didn't need changing yet and that they were happy to put the ordered tyres back in stock. Informing me that when I am ready for new tyres they will be there for me! How honest is that? He could have changed me tyres and taken my money and I would have been none the wiser. Such a lovely change to find a garage that is not just taking your money fantastic. Well done guys will highly recommend you to friends and family.??????????????????????????????
