ERJ staff report (DS)
London -- UK tyre safety organisation, Tyresafe, is mounting a tyre safety campaign throughout the month of March to highlight the dangers of defective or badly worn tyres on motorcycles and scooters.
Tyresafe said the impact of congestion, CO2 emissions and hikes in fuel prices have boosted the sale of bikes and scooters which has, in turn, led to an increase in the number of accidents involving motorcycles and scooters. Clearly, tyres play a crucial role in maintaining bike and scooter safety, and the TyreSafe campaign will focus on tread depth and the importance of tyre pressures in relation to road safety and the prevention of accidents.
