October has been chosen as annual Tyre Safety Month. October is normally the month when the UK weather begins to turn colder and wetter. Regular tyre checks are important all year round, but in particular with the onset of winter and harsher road conditions, Tyre Safety Month is designed to make drivers more aware of the safety and legal implications of having decent tyres.

Many cars – around 2 million – will fail an MOT test due to tyre related issues. This can be avoided by carrying out simple checks on a regular basis.

We are happy at Town Bridge Motors to check your tyres, free of charge, just call in when you are passing.

Remember – this is a vehicle safety issue and worn tyres will affect braking and road holding efficiency.

Remember – if you are caught driving on worn or damaged tyres, there are fines and penalty points for each offense.
