In partnership with UK-based charity TyreSafe, Peoples Ford is helping raise awareness of Tyre Safety Month throughout October, with a FREE Tyre Safety Check.
In 2018, 169 people were killed or seriously injured in UK Motoring incidents where tyre-related defects were a contributory factor. The DVSA estimate that approximately 2.2 million cars fail the MoT due to tyre-related defects each year, accounting for 27.8% of all MoT failures.
TyreSafe is the UK’s charity dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of correct tyre maintenance and the dangers of defective and illegal tyres.
Ensure you book a FREE Tyre Safety Check this October, or alternatively you will receive this alongside any service and repair work as part of a free Ford Video Check††.
Routine tyre maintenance is quick and easy, and consists of three areas: Air Pressure, Condition and Tread Depth (ACT). You should check your tyres at least once a month and before long journeys.
[††]Ford Video Check is a 30-point, visual-only inspection. We may recommend that certain essential work be carried out on the grounds of safety before you drive your vehicle. Our decision is binding and final in all matters. Contact your local Peoples Ford for more information.
