Sudden Stops may be Necessary


When you’re driving, there are all sorts of reasons why you might have to stop all of a sudden. Maybe the person in front of you brakes without warning, or someone changes lanes and overtakes you without indicating. Perhaps you need to make way for an ambulance or other emergency vehicle, or a child or animal runs across the road. Or maybe you’ve just realised that you’ve gone too far and that the turn you were supposed to make was like three streets back.

Whatever the situation, it’s important that when you brake, you can stop quickly and you don’t roll too far. And part of that is ensuring that your tyres are correctly inflated and that you have enough traction. Underinflated or overinflated tyres don’t grip the road properly, which means that you have a longer stopping distance. That longer stopping distance can make the difference between a near miss where you barely stop in time and a nasty accident.

A tyre pressure monitoring system is the best way to ensure that your tyres are always correctly inflated.

If you don’t have a TPMS, it’s easy to lose track of whether your tyres are correctly inflated or not. Regularly checking your tyre pressure is a chore, and it’s thankless work. If your tyres are already fine, then you’ve just wasted time. But if your tyres aren’t, then every day you waste will damage them more as driving on overinflated or underinflated tyres increases tyre wear (not to mention giving you a higher risk of blowouts and reducing your fuel efficiency).

The solution? Use technology. With automated tyre sensors to measure the pressure levels inside your tyres, you can offload the job to the machines. A tyre pressure monitoring system can be adjusted for the pressure range that suits your vehicle, and it will let you know as soon as your tyre pressure is above or below the desired range. That way, you’ll stay informed and can take swift action. And you won’t have to worry or waste time when your tyres are actually fine.

Safe-T-Tyre is easy to set up and will make your life a whole lot easier. You’ll save money on fuel and replacing tyres, and you’ll be a safer driver because you’ll be more capable of stopping in time when you need to.
