Safety body TyreSafe has recorded a special track, complete with video, to promote tyre safety month and encourage drivers to check their tyre pressure.
Performed by a motley crew of volunteers, the ‘Check your pressure’ song - available to watch below - has a tongue-in-cheek feel, but always keeps the tyre safety message in sight by reminding drivers just how important tyre pressure is to staying safe on the road.
Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe, said: “Filming our ‘Check your pressure’ song was fantastic fun and I promise that you’ll be humming it all day once you’ve listened to it.
“The melody is truly memorable but behind the music are some very important lyrics with a strong tyre safety message that doesn’t pull any punches. All-in-all, it’s a great way to highlight how important it is to check tyre pressures on a regular basis and I would urge everyone to take a few minutes to listen to it.”
As suggested by the song title, tyre pressure is the central theme for this year’s campaign with motorists being asked to check the air in their tyres during October and to make a commitment to carry on doing so on a monthly basis.
Ensuring your tyres are correctly inflated is critical to safe motoring as low pressures can result in a host of problems such as tyres overheating which can lead to rapid deflation. Under-inflation can also cause premature or uneven tyre wear or simply increased fuel bills.
