Be aware of tyre risks this summer

Motorists planning road trips this summer as part of getaway plans should remember the importance of essential vehicle maintenance when it comes to safety, with tyres an especially important item to keep on top of.

Vehicle safety charity TyreSafe has stated as many as nine million cars may be being driven with either under-inflated or badly worn tyres at present, presenting a serious risk to individuals embarking on extended journeys over the coming months.

Indeed, figures reported by the Highways Agency reveal that in excess of 8,700 tyre-related incidents occurred on the nation's roads network between July and September last year.

Chairman of TyreSafe Stuart Jackson commented: "While many of us will be taking to the roads soon for our summer holidays, it's important to remember that one very simple check beforehand can prevent many miserable incidents."

Drivers must therefore regularly check the state of their tyres before travelling, ensuring they are both properly inflated and free from defects.
