In The Lord of the Rings, Gandalf famously declares that “a wizard is never late, nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.” Which, I suppose, is all very well if you’re a wizard. Unfortunately, for those of us who are not privy to the magical secrets of the cosmos, punctuality is pretty important. Being late can get you fired from a job, hurt someone’s feelings, or mean you miss out on something that you were really excited about.
There are all sorts of reasons why you might be late, ranging from completely understandable to the sort of excuse that provokes eye-rolling and scowls. But sometimes the sorts of things you think are unavoidable can actually – with a bit of forethought – be safely averted a lot of the time. For instance, it sucks if you get sick, but you can minimize those chances by getting enough rest, nutrition, and regular vaccinations.
Another thing that is often seen as “just bad luck” is a flat tyre. It’s annoying as hell if you get a blowout, but there’s nothing you can do about it, right?
Wrong! With a tyre pressure monitor, you can measure the air pressure inside your tyres. The monitor alerts you if the pressure is too high or too low, circumstances that increase the risk of blowouts. You can fix the pressure as soon as you know about it, keeping your tyres in optimum condition thanks to the tyre pressure monitoring system. This way, a flat tyre won’t come at you like a thunderbolt from a clear sky. The tyre sensors let you know when you’re at risk, giving you the information you need to minimise that risk and ensure that you arrive on time to any important appointments you have planned. You might not be a wizard, but with a pressure monitor you’ll be that little bit more magical.
