As temperatures rise don’t let the pressure drop – that’s tyre pressure – advises TyreSafe to the UK’s caravan owners before they head off on their summer holidays.
To back up its tyre safety message, figures released from the AA show that not surprisingly the summer months are by far the busiest for its patrol crews dealing with caravan and trailer tyre related incidents.
In fact, it actually dealt with more than 1,500 requests for help from the start of May to the end of September in 2012, compared to just 622 for the other seven months of the year.
Stuart Jackson, chairman, TyreSafe, said: “More often than not, tyre issues can be avoided if the tyres are properly maintained and regularly inspected."
To help caravan owners understand the importance of tyre safety, TyreSafe has a dedicated caravan section on its website www.tyresafe.org.
