Last summer I had a car accident
Everyone was OK but it brought my attention to car safety more than ever. Sometimes “these things happen” – that’s what insurance is for. But, as a mother, it made me realise how important it is to ensure my car is in tip top condition.
Every year my car has a full service in the spring – before the MOT is due. Every year in late autumn it has a winter service so I know that it is safe for the winter months.
If the worst happens and you are in a situation where an accident could be avoided, your car is in the best condition to enable you to do that This is especially the case for choosing tyres.
Having the right tyres for your specific vehicle is essential
Tyres affect many areas of safety. You have to remember that tyres are the only part of your vehicle that has direct contact with the road. This makes them very important. Not only that but not all tyres are created equal. There are tyres created specifically for your vehicle.
Your cars tyres affect the handling of your vehicle, braking distance and therefore, safety. It is essential that you have your tyres at the correct air pressure too.
We have family in France so we do a lot of long distance driving. It is very important that our tyres are up to the journey.
As parents we choose the safest car we can for our money
There are lots of makes and models but a safe, popular option is Audi
We see a lot of them on the road and especially on the school run and for good reason, Audi’s have a great reputation as a safe, reliable car. But even safe reliable cars must have the correct tyres in order to ensure they are as as safe as possible.
If you are lucky enough to have an Audi then you need tyres that are a correct match. Audi tyres are available from Point S website here.
They do of course supply a wide range of tyres for other vehicle makes and models.
So, you can see having the correct tyres for your particular vehicle plays a huge part in the safety for you and for your family.
