Free Tyre Checks at National Tyres and Autocare
National Tyres and Autocare is offering free tyre checks to support Tyre Safety Month. To book a check, visit http://www.national.co.uk This free service by a trained fitter covers all the tyres on your vehicle – including the spare – ensuring your tyres are safe for the roads. The examination covers 3 key points: tread depth, air pressure and general tyre condition.
WHY IS A TYRE CHECK IMPORTANT?
Tyres are a vehicle’s only point of contact with the road – and there’s only a postcard sized area in touch with the road surface on each tyre. Acceleration, braking, steering and cornering are all dependent on a vehicle’s tyres, so it’s essential they are properly maintained for passenger safety and vehicle performance. In 2010, illegal, defective and under inflated tyres were responsible for over 1,210 road casualties in Great Britain. ‘Making sure that your tyres are safe and legal is a quick and easy job, yet we still see hundreds of accidents occurring each year because drivers don’t make these essential safety checks’ says Stuart Jackson, chairman at TyreSafe.
WHO’S RESPONSIBLE FOR A TYRE’S CONDITION?
The driver is responsible for a vehicle’s tyre safety. Failure to comply with legal standards can result in fines of up to £2,500 and 3 penalty points – and that’s per tyre. Take the worry out of checking your tyres by having them checked by a professional at National Tyres and Autocare.
National’s free visual inspection covers other vitally important parts of a vehicle too – including brakes, battery, exhausts and shock absorbers, - visit http://www.national.co.uk for full details.
