The dangers of part worn tyres were highlighted at an industry briefing organised by TyreSafe, the UK’s leading tyre safety group.
More than 170 delegates attended the event, which was open to anyone with an interest in tyre and road safety and attracted organisations including tyre retailers and manufacturers, car makers, insurers, fleet providers, emergency services and trading standards.
According to TyreSafe, the key to the event’s success was that it did not shy away from tackling topical and relevant subject matters, particularly those of part worn tyres.
Attendees also heard a fascinating case study from Chandlers BMW and Sussex Police as to how they worked together in last year’s Tyre Safety Month.
It showed that with minimal expenditure and some creative thinking that great results in terms of public interaction and media coverage can be achieved – improving road safety at a local level very effectively and cost efficiently.
