    Staffs SRP highlights the importance of optimally-inflated tyres


    Staffordshire has made headlines recently for its initiative in highlighting the importance of having optimally-inflated tyres on all road vehicles. The Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership has been working in conjunction with TyreSafe, a not-for-profit concern that focuses on making sure people know how important it is to be aware of the condition of their tyres.

    It is important to drive with properly-inflated tyres because if they are underinflated or overinflated there is more chance of having an accident. Not only this, drivers can actually make their tyres last longer by checking them regularly to ensure they are inflated to the proper level. The initiative has recommended that tyre pressure should be checked a minimum of every month, and always before starting off on a longer journey.

    A number of motorists have responded to a recent survey that focused on tyre safety. It appears that few of us don’t bother to check our tyres that often – certainly not as often as we should do based on the information given above. Both tyre tread and whether or not they are properly inflated should be focused on, and yet few of us do this.

    How dangerous can poorly-maintained tyres be?

    We all tend to take tyres for granted but in fact we should be checking how well-inflated they are on a regular basis. As we have already seen, a poorly-inflated tyre can make it more difficult to control a car, making accidents more likely. Since an accident can result in injury or even death to any road users or pedestrians who are involved, it is vital that we have optimally-inflated tyres to help prevent accidents. It takes just a few minutes to check them every now and then and it could make a major difference – to your life and to others.

    Do you need no-obligation advice regarding a road accident?

    It is stressful enough to be involved in a road accident without having to work out who was at fault. If you are unsure whether another party caused an accident, we can help determine whether there is evidence that negligence was involved. Call Accident Advice Helpline today on our free 24/7 enquiry line to find out more.
