The Weekly Roundup

‘Safe tyres save lives’ is a new message being seen by drivers on overhead message boards in a bid to help reduce the number of dangerous incidents following more than 2500 tyre related breakdowns reported in May and June alone. Closed lanes, tailbacks, delays, injury and even loss of life are just some of the consequences of driving with un-safe tyres.

In other news, the Automotive leather industry is set to grow ‘significantly’ as animal welfare charities PETA and the RSPCA encourage drivers to opt for more eco-friendly alternatives.
