Increases safety – According to road safety reports, incorrect tyre pressure in vehicles typically accounts for 9% of fatal accidents and 41% of accidents involving injury in the UK. Properly inflated tyres results in shorter, more reliable breaking distances, and reduces the risk of tears in the tyre surface or tyre blow-outs.
Saves fuel – The EU states that under-inflation of tyres accounts for 20 million litres of additional fuel consumed globally each year. Driving on properly inflated tyres ensures that a vehicle’s fuel consumption is as low as possible, and consequently saves money that would otherwise be spent on fuel.
Environmentally friendly – It is estimated that due to increased fuel consumption, 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions are released into the atmosphere annually. By using TPMS and reducing fuel consumption, this helps to limit the amount of carbon emissions that your vehicle releases.
