Tyresafe to focus on part-worn tyres and labelling issues at summit

1st March 2012

Compound safety awareness campaigners Tyresafe look set to focus on the dangers of part-worn tyres and the new regulations surrounding tyre labelling at their next communications briefing.

First established in 2006, Tyresafe are focused on raising awareness about the dangers associated with illegal tyres as well as calling for an end to the neglect of compounds by drivers in the UK.

On May 3rd, the not-for-profit organisation is set to hold a free-to-attend event for anyone with an interest in tyres and overall road safety at the Ardencote Manor hotel in Warwickshire.

The event will focus on informing attendees of the various challenges facing tyre safety with the aim of highlighting the important work of the safety body.

Highlights included a briefing on the organisation's plans for a campaign against the use of part-worn tyres by young drivers and fleet firms.

In addition to these, attendees will receive further information on the new EU tyre regulations set to be introduced later this year.

Commenting on the event, TyreSafe chairman Stuart Jackson said: "This is a great opportunity to explore some pressing road safety issues and we would encourage as many connected to the industry to come along.
"More than ever this is a must attend event for anyone with an interest in tyres and road safety."
