We would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Stuart Jackson on his re-election as the chairman of TyreSafe, the UK’s leading tyres safety campaign group.
The appointment marks his third term as the head of the not-for-profit organisation, which he has led since 2010.
Jackson said: “I’m honoured to have been re-elected by my colleagues to such a fantastic and worthwhile position. We’ve achieved so much as an organisation over the last few years, yet there is still a great deal of work to do, so I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to continue playing such an important role.”
TyreSafe was established in 2006 with the sole aim of raising awareness about the dangers associated with illegal and defective tyres. Since then, its campaigning has helped reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured each year in the UK in a tyre related accident by 36 per cent.
TyreSafe continues to work closely with a wide range of organisations to help educate drivers about the importance of tyre safety and the need to maintain their tyres in a safe and legal condition. It counts leading tyres manufacturers, car makers, insurers and local councils as members.
In addition to its well-supported annual tyres safety month campaign, TyreSafe delivers many other high-profile activities targeting specific road user groups such as young drivers, motorcyclists or caravanners. The organisation has also been at the forefront of a campaign to educate people about the risks associated with illegally sold part worn tyres, which has seen Jackson appear on several TV news programmes and reports.
“Last year was TyreSafe’s busiest and most successful to date so it’s important that we don’t lose this momentum,” Jackson explained. “I remain as excited as ever about the challenge ahead and look forward continuing to make our roads a safer place.”
