Mums always know best… Not When It Comes to the Best Tyres!

Okay so my own mother would be in shock at reading this headline, because as far as all mums are concerned, yes, they do know best. Well, most of the time that is.

With all the running around parents (especially mums) do these days for their kids like going to school and back, weekend trips, sport on the weekends the list goes on you would think that tyre maintenance and car safety would be a high priority for mums yes? Apparently not.

A survey conducted by a American tyre company Cooper tyres unveiled that mums don’t seem to understand or rate tyre and vehicle safety as high on their list in regards to caring for their children.

The top worries for mums about their children were things like nutrition, healthy lifestyle, brushing their teeth and reading ranked above all others with tyre and vehicle maintenance coming in at less than 1% of those surveyed.

The importance of tyre safety…

Tyre safety does really need to be considered by mums across the globe. Driving can be one of the most dangerous activities you and your children will do each and every day. While we get into a routine and take driving down to the shops for granted, the driving world consists of so many variables that can have devastating effects on your families safety.

So if you are one of the mums out there who didn’t think that tyre safety was important, then you have already made your first mistake, dads too in that case! If you are unsure of how to check your vehicles tyres to make sure they are properly inflated, free from any cuts, slices or sidewall damage or if they have the legal amount of tread then you’d better give us a call.
