The Camping and Caravanning Club has thrown its considerable weight behind TyreSafe, the UK’s leading tyre safety organisation.
The latest organisation to become a supporter of TyreSafe’s road safety campaigning activities, it is the world’s oldest and largest club for lovers of camping and caravan getaways and represents the interests of more than half a million members.
Robert Louden MBE, Director General of The Camping and Caravanning Club, said: “The only thing standing between your car, caravan or motorhome and the road is your tyres. The very latest information on how to check and maintain them is invaluable to Club members, so we’re delighted to support TyreSafe, and applaud the work it does to raise awareness around this issue.”
Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe, added: “We’re delighted to join forces formally with The Camping and Caravanning Club and strengthen the great work we’ve already done together.
“A careful tyre inspection routine is especially important when towing a caravan or driving a motorhome that may only be used occasionally, and The Camping and Caravanning Club’s support for TyreSafe will ensure that its members benefit from vital tyre safety advice. Not only will this help to raise the profile of safe tyres within the camping and caravan community; it will also help to educate motorists and bring down the number of tyre related road casualties.”
The Club’s involvement in TyreSafe campaigns is set to raise awareness about the importance of correctly maintained tyres among the UK’s 650,000 caravan and motorhome owners.
With more than 5,000 tyre-related towing incidents recorded by fellow supporter the Highways Agency in 2013, the Camping and Caravanning Club joins a number of major road safety organisations who share concerns about tyre safety issues and support TyreSafe’s activities, such as the Chief Fire Officers Association and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.
All members of the Camping and Caravanning Club benefit from a 5% discount when they order their new tyres and batteries from etyres.
etyres mobile tyre fitting service makes it a popular choice for caravan and motorhome owners who do not want the hassle of driving their vehicles to a garage or tyre depot to have their tyres fitted.
