Children can clock up around three hours a week in the car with their parents* and around 96 hours per year with grandparents at the wheel**. Friends, childminders and guardians may also be regularly transporting kids of all ages to nursery, school, clubs, parties and other activities.  So, with childcare responsibilities often spread among different people, it's important that everyone in that care network ensures their tyres are safe.

 

Take a look at this short clip from TyreSafe’s ‘Child Care – Tyre Care’ campaign, highlighting the importance of tyres in keeping drivers and their young passengers safe while on the roads as well as demonstrating some basic tyre care that you can do at home.

Stuart Jackson, Chairman of TyreSafe, said: “With child care responsibilities spread among different people, many of whom will be driving their young charges to and fro, it’s important that everyone in that care network regularly makes sure their car’s tyres are safe.

“Car tyres are the only part of the car in contact with the road, which makes their maintenance essential for road safety. Whether you are a parent, grandparent or guardian, checking your tyres once a month is crucial for keeping yourself and your passengers safe on the road. Let’s make sure we get them home safely on safe tyres.”
