TyreSafe on the right road

TyreSafe has celebrated its 10th birthday by announcing it’s been awarded full charity status.

The recognition is a major boost to the tyre safety awareness campaign as TyreSafe works to reduce the number of tyre-related incidents on the UK’s roads by educating Britain’s motorists on the importance of correct tyre maintenance and the dangers of defective and illegal tyres.

Stuart Jackson, chairman, said, ‘TyreSafe is delighted have been awarded charity status, which is a major step forward for tyre safety awareness. The network of supporters is a critical contributor to the campaign’s effectiveness and becoming a charity allows us to broaden the spectrum of stakeholder organisations that TyreSafe can work with. That provides us with a springboard to further increase the reach of the potentially life-saving tyre safety message which has been achieved over the past ten years.’
