Tyre warning for winter motorists
AS winter approaches Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service is urging motorists to prepare for the cold weather by checking their tyres.
Road traffic collision reduction officer Kenny McDonald said: "We are keen to make people aware of the importance of undertaking regular tyre safety checks.
"We want all drivers to have a look at their existing car tyres, including the spare and make sure they are legal and in good condition.
"If in doubt, call in at your local garage or tyre specialist who will check that your tyres are ready for the more challenging driving conditions that any inclement weather might bring."
He said all drivers should make sure that tyres are correctly inflated and remember to keep their distance from other vehicles to ensure they are able to stop in enough time to avoid collisions.
