Free tyre checks

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Ve­hi­cle own­ers in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang will be of­fered a free tyre safety check to keep them safe on the roads.

Arnold Clark will of­fer a free tyre safety clinic at Tesco Ex­tra in Ruther­glen on Thurs­day and Fri­day, June 30 and July 1.

As part of a tour the com­pany will be host­ing a se­ries of clin­ics to pro­mote tyre safety and ed­u­cate driv­ers about the im­por­tance of tyre main­te­nance.

Ex­pe­ri­enced Arnold Clark staff will carry out free tyre checks, give away free tyre safety kits ( con­tain­ing a pres­sure gauge and a tread­depth gauge) and of­fer use­ful tyre ad­vice.

Paul Bryce­land, ser­vice man­ager at Ruther­glen Ford/ Fiat/ Abarth, said: “Many peo­ple don’t re­alise how easy it is to keep on top of their tyres so we use these tyre clin­ics to ed­u­cate and to ex­plain how to check things like tread depth and tyre pres­sure. Know­ing how to carry out these sim­ple checks means you can con­tin­u­ally mon­i­tor your tyres and stay safe on the road.”

Reg­u­lar tyre pres­sure checks have been linked with re­duced num­bers of se­ri­ous in­juries in car crashes.

Over the past five years there has been an an­nual av­er­age of 198 deaths and 1,135 se­ri­ous in­juries on UK roads as a re­sult of tyr­ere­lated in­ci­dents.
