Most mums spend their time rushing getting jobs done for everyone else and often don’t have chance to do things for themselves, like checking their tyres, topping up windscreen washer fluid or even giving their car a wash and polish.
If you are not sure how to check whether the tread depths on your mums car are safe – that is above the legal minimum of 1.6mm across the central three quarters and around the entire circumference – click here and watch Vicki Butler Henderson show you how quick and easy it is.
