Free tyre safety checks for motorists in Yeadon
8:00am Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in News
Motorists in Yeadon are being offered free tyre-safety checks this October.
The checks, on offer from Economy Tyres on Henshaw Lane, are organised as part of a safety month run by the not-for-profit group TyreSafe.
Carl Horner, from Economy Tyres, said: “As we approach the winter months and the road conditions change for the worse, it’s really important that drivers make sure their tyres are in a safe and legal condition.
“Often people aren’t sure what they’re supposed to be looking for, or simply feel that they don’t have the time, so these free safety checks are a great way to overcome these problems.”
The company says more than 1,200 road casualties were caused in the UK last year by accidents where illegal, defective and under-inflated tyres were a contributory factor.
