●● FIREFIGHTERS will be visiting Tesco in Macclesfield to teach motorists how to drive safer this winter.
Crews will be offering drivers a free car safety check at the Hibel Road store on Friday, October 23 from 10am-3pm, as part of their continuing campaign for safer roads.
Tyres will be checked for bulges, tyre depth and pressure, and the firefighters will show drivers how to check oil and water levels, and explain the importance of maintaining them.
Every driver who has a vehicle check will take away safety leaflets and winter driving items such as tyre pressure and depth gauges.
Frances Egerton, fire service road safety officer, said: “It’s important to be prepared in case bad weather strikes. Engaging with drivers across Cheshire to advise them on safer driving in wintery conditions is an important part of our road safety campaigning and our drive to cut road traffic collisions and incidents.
“I’m hoping people will take the time to have their cars checked by our crews and take away some helpful information.”
