This is another great video from Tyresafe.org. Naturally, in my opinion, Tyresafe are the number one tyre safety organisation here in the UK. Tyre testing is the only way that we can show the public about tyre safety. Especially, on wet roads with tyres that are almost bald. Tyres are track tested time and time again. Fortunately, it does sink in, with some drivers.

The results of this tyre testing is overwhelming. We see this time after time. Of course, it all depends on whether drivers actually look at these videos, or not. I suspect, though, that many drivers will indeed take a look at these type of videos. One of the big problems that have raised its ugly head in recent times, is the rise again of the part-worn tyres. This problem has arisen by the need to save money.The people that  buy these products are on the younger spectrum of our drivers.

I can understand, that young people with a tight budget, think that they are saving money.We had a young driver in the other Saturday. She had been buying part worn tyres for £20 each. Naturally, she thought she was saving money. The tyres were only lasting her a couple of weeks. For this reason, she decided to invest in new tyres. She finally realised that it was false economy and just a short-term fix to buy part worn tyres.

Tyresafe did do an article about this. You can see this on  http://www.tyresafe.org/tyre-safety/part-worn-tyres/

The film dramatically depicts the difference in braking distances between a car equipped with new tyres and another with tread depth below the legal limit of 1.6mm in wet conditions. While watching on their Smartphone, viewers can turn their heads to see all the action in front, to the side, above or even behind them, giving an immersive – and literally impactful – experience.
