Autumn is beautiful, but it can pose challenges for road users as cold and damp roads significantly affect your driving performance. Vehicle tyres act as your guide to the surface of the road and when conditions start to worsen, it is important that your tyres are in top condition and up to the job of keeping you safe. It is recommended that you check your tyres on a regular basis and before commencing long journeys.
By simply carrying out these checks it can help you reduce your fuel bills and emissions, extend the life of your tyres, as well as ensuring that your vehicle can perform properly and safety. It is also a legal requirement that your tyres are to a satisfactory standard. Driving a vehicle with an illegal or defective tyre could lead to you being fined up to £2,500 and three penalty points on your licence. We've created a list of points to keep your tyres in check.
Making sure your tyres are road safe is not only great to keep you safe and legal on the roads this winter, it can also achieve better fuel economy.
