30 Jan

By Clarissa Hearn

During this week TyreSafe have been handing out tread depth gauges to Police constabulary’s nationally.
Area Manager Gareth Vrac (pictured right) was a guest on Tuesday 30th at the Gwaelod Y Garth police station in Wales as part of the TyreSafe initiative to encourage police offers to remember to check tread depths on tyres when stopping vehicles.
The local Inspector (pictured left) met with Gareth and Jason Simms (TyreSafe) and gladly accepted the cards to hand out to his on the road enforcement team.
TyreSafe will be presenting at the Police Federation Conference on January 31st which provides an opportunity to discuss tyre safety with police forces nationally and to announce its support for the NRPIF initiative of handing out tread depth gauges to police forces and regions across the country.

Are your tyres safe and legal?
Did you know, you can be fined £2,500 and get 3 points on your license per tyre if they are found to be under the legal tread depth limit.
