One of UK’s largest independent tyre specialists National Tyres and Autocare speaks about the great importance of properly inflated tyres in crash and injury prevention.
Stockport, Cheshire -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/07/2013 -- Road studies commissioned by the UK Tyre Industry Council have revealed how little importance is allotted to tyre pressure monitoring. In a survey of more than 1,000 tyres it was highlighted that under 5% of all tyres were properly inflated, while 70% of tyres were under-inflated.
Ensuring proper inflation pressure in the tyres allows vehicle drivers to maintain car handling and braking under control, also decreasing fuel consumption and expanding tyre life. Furthermore, correct inflation pressure will also prevent tread separations and blowouts, enabling the driver to maintain control over the vehicle and avoid serious crashes and rollovers.
Upon reviewing existing research to assess the role of improperly inflated car tyres in crash and injury causes, as well as referring to environmental costs, representative of UK fast-fit tyre specialist National Tyres and Autocare stated:”Although many drivers don’t realize it, under-inflation of tyres is the main cause of different types of crashes, sometimes influencing the course of action in subtle and indirect manners. Aside from crashes and injuries, underinflated tyres cause reduced vehicle handling and braking distance, increased tyre wear, increased fuel consumption and blowout rate.”
