National Tyre Safety Month
October is national tyre safety month, and during the month motorists across the country are encouraged to look at their tyres to make sure they are in good health. Drivers who drive without healthy tyres run the risk of having an accident on the roads or even being fined.
The team at Croxdale Fast Fit have put together some points which include information, advice and general tips which can help you maintain healthy tyres this national tyre safety month.
Why is tyre safety important?
When you think about how your tyres are the only point of contact you have with the road, people realise how important it is to have tyres which are roadworthy.
How often should tyres be checked?
Ideally, you should try and check the tread as well as the overall condition of your tyres at least once a week, or before any long journeys. Some of the main things to take a look at is your vehicles tyre pressure, tread depth, or any damage which may cause danger on the roads.
What’s the minimum legal tread depth?
1.6mm is the lowest legal tread depth allowed on the roads until tyres are deemed not roadworthy. This is because the more tread you have the more grip your vehicle has to the roads, meaning the less tread you have the less control you’re likely to have of your vehicles, especially when driving in wet weather conditions.
