Don’t get deflated on holiday

Thousands of British holidaymakers could be risking hours of motorway misery this summer by failing to check their tyre pressures before setting off, writes Standard motoring correspondent Nigel Wigmore.

However, by simply checking their tyre pressures prior to travelling, drivers can significantly reduce their risk of suffering a tyre related breakdown.

The latest advice has been issued by TyreSafe, who estimate that some nine million cars in the UK are being driven with seriously or severely under-inflated tyres which can be a major cause of tyre failures, particularly in hot weather or when vehicles are heavily laden.

“While many of us will be taking to the roads soon for our summer holidays, it’s important to remember that one very simple check beforehand can prevent many miserable incidents,” comments Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe.
