The National Tyre Distributors Association has been given a safety award by TyreSafe, in recognition of its contribution to raising public awareness of the importance of tyre safety. The award was presented at the recent British Tyre Manufacturer’s Association dinner in Solihull. The award was presented by TyreSafe chairman Rob Beddis, who stated, “The NTDA has made a significant contribution to raising awareness of the importance of tyre safety and are worthy recipients of the TyreSafe award. NTDA members have given their full support to Tyre Safety Month, and have also been rigorous in running their own tyre safety campaigns, notably the recent tyre ageing campaign held in conjunction with the RAC Foundation, which reached out to motorists via TV, radio and press to raise awareness of the dangers of driving on over-aged tyres”.
A spokesman for the NTDA voiced the association’s delight at receiving the award, “I’m delighted to receive the TyreSafe award on behalf of our members. The NTDA is fully committed to supporting the good work of TyreSafe in raising awareness of the dangers of defective tyres. NTDA members across the country are participating in Tyre Safety Month by offering free tyre safety checks and advice to local motorists.”
