With the AA estimaing more than 12 million drivers are expected to put recessionary blues behind them and travel to spend Christmas with family or friends this year, it is vital you check your tyres before setting off.
By making sure your tyres are safe and legal, that’s properly inflated and have plenty of tread depth, you are not only protecting your loved ones, but also the drivers and passengers in the other cars on the roads.
With ice and snow sweeping across the UK your tyres need to be able to handle the most hazardous weather and conditions of the year at one of the busiest times on the roads.
Almost 35 per cent of those polled in a survey of 12,231 AA members reveaded that they intend to travel to family or friends in the UK or abroad and more than a quarter (26%) said they would be travelling up to 24 miles from home.
The study also showed that almost one in five (18%) are planning a journey of more than 100 miles, while around a million drivers (3%) will be clocking up more than 500 miles.
