Tyre Safety Month takes place throughout October Monday, 29th September 2008

As October’s Tyre Safety Month begins, TyreSafe advises motorists to check their tyre pressures and stay safe on the roads

Motorists are continuing to put their own lives, as well as those of passengers and other road users at risk by ignoring the dangers of incorrect tyre inflation. The warning has been issued by TyreSafe, the UK’s leading tyre safety organisation, as it launches October’s Tyre Safety Month. The latest statistics released by the Department for Transport show that illegal, defective or under-inflated tyres were a contributory factor in the death of 43 motorists in 2007, and played a part in a further 984 accidents. New research conducted by TyreSafe has highlighted the scale of the problem, with more than half of motorists surveyed admitting that they had not checked their tyre pressure in the last month, the maximum period recommended by TyreSafe between pressure checks.

Caparo?s Rightfuel could have spared Rooney?s roadside blushes   Print  
Wayne Rooney became one of the 150,000 people who are estimated to incorrectly fill their diesel cars with wrong type of fuel each year Wednesday, 24th September 2008

Wayne Rooney could have spared himself the embarrassment of being rescued from the hard shoulder of the M62 earlier this week if his car had been fitted with Rightfuel, a misfuel prevention device from Caparo. Rightfuel, being launched tomorrow (25th September) at the Green Fleet Awards in London, prevents the wrong type of fuel being added to diesel vehicles. On Monday, the Manchester United and England star filled his wife’s £90,000 diesel Range Rover Sport V8 with unleaded petrol, causing it to stop just one mile later. Rooney now faces a repair bill of up to £6,000 which could have been avoided with this simple device.
