Whilst we all have our own budgets and stuff like that, safety is something we should never shirk on and is something that we should always be considering. When it comes to car safety and thus the safety of my family, of my children, money is no object. But just how safe are your cars? For instance, would you know when your car tyres need replacing?
Cox Motor Parts have created a fab infographic (read more about it here), talking about 10 warning signs that your car tyres need replacing. How many did you know?
Now I’m not the driver in our household but safety is paramount to me and I knew the majority of these. I must admit that I don’t think we change the tyre pressure as regularly as we should do which will be changing as of today and that I know of plenty of people who probably don’t even know half of these. So many of these things happen because people ‘don’t have the money’ to fix them – surely safety comes first?
It is important to have a budget but it is also super important to ensure the safety not only of yourself but your family, other road users and pedestrians too. Knowing what to look for when it comes to car safety is key to avoiding any unnecessary accidents. Why not pay the small amount to replace your tyres when they need replacing rather than run the risk of paying thousands if you have an accident or even paying with your life? It isn’t worth the risk. Get them checked.
How many of these did you know?
