Educating the public on the importance of tyre safety

Educating the public on the importance of tyre safety

27 Jan

By Maddie Poulter

Last week staff from our Maldon and Ipswich garages set up a stand in supermarket car parks offering free tyre checks to the public. The event was to raise awareness around the importance of tyre safety and inform drivers about simple ways to ensure they stay on top of tyre maintenance.

Area Manager Matt Williams, who accompanied the Supertyres Maldon team felt the day was a huge success:

“We spoke with over 1000 shoppers and gave them informational leaflets on tyres and tyre safety. We also checked over 100 cars resulting in 4 cars needing to have their tyres replaced and made safer. This is something I will definitely do again as we have had great responses and most-importantly.
Did you know?

The legal tread limit for tyre tread depth is 1.6mm but we advise to regularly check your vehicle’s tyres to avoid hefty fines and points on your licence. Driving on tyres below the legal limit can result in fines of up to £2500 per tyre…so it’s possible to incur fines of up to £10,000 and 12 points if all four tyres are illegal.
