Checking Tyre Pressure – How Often?
Tyre pressure allows you to drive safely and avoid putting yourself in unnecessary danger when making journeys. Low tyre pressure accounts for many crashes, as tyres deflate and will no longer allow a driver to drive safely. Checking tyre pressure could save your life, and that isn’t an exaggeration.
Checking the tyre pressure of your car is easy. You can do so at most garages, where you will be able to test the tyre pressure and then refill tyres if you need to at the same time. You can do this free of charge, or for a small fee for the air. Generally you should check your tyre pressure every few weeks at the very least, maybe more for an older vehicle. If it is low, fill it up immediately. If it’s very low, you shouldn’t drive and should instead fill up the tyres with a manual foot pump or similar.
