From 1st November 2014, in compliance with EU safety regulations, all new vehicles built are fitted with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). This safety feature is fitted to the wheels of all cars and some vans. It uses a sensor to detect sudden or gradual changes in tyre pressure and alerts the driver.
Keeping your tyres properly inflated is essential for your safety on the road. Not only will correct tyre pressures reduce the risk of suffering a dangerous high speed blowout, but it will also give you better handling and braking. What's more, maintaining your vehicle's tyre pressure at the correct inflation means your tyres will last longer, you'll use less fuel and you'll even reduce your impact on the environment.
Your tyres will lose pressure naturally over time so it's important that you check them at least once a month or before long journeys.
