Title: Tyre Safety Month 2013

The 2013 tyre safety month campaign, organised by TyreSafe, encourages drivers to check their tyre pressures at least once a month.

The 2013 tyre safety month campaign, organised by TyreSafe, encourages drivers to check their tyre pressures at least once a month – a simple job which can significantly improve road safety, make tyres last longer, reduce fuel bills and cut carbon emissions.

TyreSafe points to results from a recent pan-European vehicle survey involving 27,000 cars which found that 78% of cars were being driven on under-inflated tyres and 28% had tyres that were either seriously or severely underinflated, greatly reducing their safety.

Tyre safety month 2013 includes a Youtube video/song featuring members of the trade singing along to tune of the famous Queen hit ‘Under pressure’, and a dedicated campaign website.

Road safety professionals can either register on the campaign website to have materials sent to them, or can download them straight to their desktop.
