TyreSafe - Tyre Safety Month

While the need to carry out regular tyre checks may seem obvious an alarming number of Britain’s motorists are replacing their tyres only when they have already become illegal and dangerous. If they carried out #TyreChecks, this avoidable safety issue could be rectified.

  • Potentially over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres could be on Britain's roads in 2016
  • Tread depth has a decisive influence on the way your vehicle accelerates, brakes and corners
  • Safe tyres with legal tread depth will reduce the risks to you, your passengers and all road users
  • Driving on tyres with illegal tread depth not only reduces your safety on the road but also risks a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre

 

Facts & figures

TyreSafe's survey found that more than 27% of people replaced their tyres when they were already illegal, that could mean over 10 million illegal and dangerous tyres on Britain's roads in 2016.

  • The total number of casualties resulting from tyre-related incidents over last five reported years* is 5,677 of which 989 people were killed or seriously injured, annually averaging 1135 and 198 respectively
  • Where casualties arise from an accident caused by a vehicle defect, tyres are the single largest contributory factor over the last five reported years*, accounting for 36% of the total
  • The estimated cost of tyre-related incidents to the economy over the last five reported years* is £416 million, averaging £83.2 million annually
  • Annually, 2.2 million cars fail the MoT due to tyre-related defects**
  • TyreSafe's survey in partnership with Highways England revealed potentially up to 10 million, or more than one-in-four cars and vans on Britain's roads, was driven with an illegal and dangerous tyre in 2016***

What our customers think

One word "AMAZING" popped in today ,ran into Craig in the yard as always he remembers my name and my car, I had a warning light on which he instantly looked at, and resolved within seconds, a pint of milk on the passenger seat made my Peugeot think I had a passenger not wearing a seat belt lol, we chuckled and he sent me on my merry way happy as always when I've visited Service U Right, honest service which is second to none PS lovely Porsche in the car park says it all when a customer leaves you a 100k Porsche, all the best George

George Melfoure - September 2017

Amazing, honest reliable service, dropped my car in with a suspect gearbox/flywheel fault as diagnosed elsewhere, Service U Right diagnosed a loose exhaust mount and problem solved for £15 as apposed to the many hundreds of pounds quoted locally by another tyre place! Brilliant that's all I can say I will always use you from now on

Mary/Shaftesbury - July 2017

Craig and the team at Service U Right are outstanding, they really know what they are doing with modern cars, and had a great knowledge of the tyre pressure monitor system on my car, this pesky light had been on for months and the instructions in the handbook had not helped me, I took my car into Service U Right for a full service and when I collect it the problem was cured as part of the Service it was a calibration issue and a simple fix once I took it to someone who knows there stuff. The team at Service U Right where extremely helpful,polite and I shall always come back
