2015 Tyre Safety Month to be launched at briefing
The theme and materials for Tyre Safety Month 2015 will be revealed by TyreSafe at its annual briefing on 9 July at the National Motorcycle Museum, and anyone with an interest in road safety is invited to attend free of charge.
Tyre Safety Month takes place annually each October. In 2014 more than 500,000 posters, leaflets and other campaign materials were distributed to the public during Tyre Safety Month.
Events held around the country include awareness days with local police and fire services, tyre pressure audits at business car parks, free tyre safety checks by TyreSafe approved dealers, and press and social media activity.
The briefing on 9 July will include presentations from police, fire services, highway authorities and road safety partnerships, who will explain how they’ve supported Tyre Safety Month in the past and how they intend to do so in 2015.
Michelle Watkins, senior road safety officer at Central Bedfordshire Highways, will be demonstrating the interactive safety car OSCAR at the briefing.
Michelle Watkins said: “The Tyre Safety Month materials are always a fantastic help for our campaigns and the briefing brings all different kinds of people into the same room. Everyone comes away buzzing with ideas and equipped with everything they need for Tyre Safety Month and beyond.”
Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe, said: “Tyre Safety Month 2014 was a massive success. Events were held across the country and they had a great impact on the public awareness of tyre safety. We fully expect Tyre Safety Month 2015 to build on this reputation.”
