We live in a twenty-four-hour world. People are working more and more, filling their time with commitments. Many people work multiple jobs, take on side projects and have precious little down time as it is. In this age of around-the-clock labour, where people are busier than ever, it becomes increasingly difficult to remember to slot in all the little things that keep things running. More than one person I know has let even regular medical or dental check-ups fall by the wayside, slipping through the cracks as they run frantically on the treadmill of modern life.
A motor vehicle is a fine-tuned machine, and it requires frequent maintenance and fine-tuning. Apart from mechanic visits, it needs to be cleaned, refuelled, and – crucially – have its tyre pressure checked and fixed. That last one’s easy to forget. If you run out of petrol, then your vehicle will stop running, but if you let your tyre pressure go to the dogs, then you often won’t notice until it’s much too late – even though your vehicle’s performance, safety, and fuel efficiency will have suffered the whole time. That’s why it’s worth investing in a tyre pressure monitoring system.
Also known as a TPMS, the tyre pressure monitor uses automated tyre sensors to check the pneumatic pressure inside your tyres, so that you don’t have to. With so many things competing for your attention, the pressure monitor is an invaluable assistant, saving you time for the more important things in life. And by that I don’t just mean work – I mean friends and family, the things that really matter.
