●● 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.”
