Many safety experts will tell you that the tires on your vehicle are the most important safety component on the vehicle. Tires help drivers maneuver safely and avoid accidents. However, when tires fail, the consequences can be drastic. Each year there are nearly 11,000 tire-related crashes in the U.S. Thousands of people are seriously injured and several hundred people die each year from those crashes.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the federal agency that oversees vehicle safety which includes tire safety, many of these crashes can be avoided simply by understanding tire maintenance, tire labels, keeping track of the age of your tires, and monitoring recalls. The following are some simple tire safety tips to help assure your tires are safe.
