Be Ready For Road Safety Week

October 1st – October 7th 2018

Next Monday marks the start of Road Safety Week 2018 and Wednesday October 3rd has been designated as Tyre Safety Day.

There will be heightened awareness for overall road safety and tyre safety during the week. The Road Safety Authority (RSA) will be running a series of initiatives which are listed on their website here.

On Monday, the Irish Tyre Industry Association (ITIA) will begin a campaign for the week on RTE advertising that ITIA members will provide “FREE tyre pressure” and “FREE tread depth” checks during the week.

Commenting on the announcement, Eddie Ryan, Marketing Director with Advance Pitstop stated “Advance Pitstop are delighted to play our part in this important event. Road safety has to be promoted throughout the year, and we actively encourage all motorist to take a few minutes out from their busy lives next week to get their tyres check FREE of CHRGE in any of our 30 Branches nationwide. These few minutes will allow us to check their tyres and those checks could in fact save the life of the motorist or a pedestrian.

Our 5 point safety check is fully supported by the RSA and we also have a safety corner in most of our outlets where we have safety information provided by the RSA and some free RSA High Viz vests for customers to take home with them.”
