TOp 5 Tips to keeping mobile in the event of a puncture
1. KNOW WHAT YOU'VE GOT
It is important to check whether your vehicle carries a spare tyre, a space saver tyre or a mobility kit so you are prepared in advance. Also, ensure that other users of your vehicle are aware
2. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS IN ADVANCE
Having a puncture in one of your tyres can also be a moment of great distress and/or inconvenience. Being prepared by reading the instructions in advance will ensure you are in control in such an event.
3. ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE DETAILS TO HAND
Tyres play a crucial role in ensuring the safety of all road users so any issue is best dealt with by the experts; it is important to have all the details to hand should the need arise. Always use roadside recovery services when tyres are more seriously damaged since this may also be indicative of a more severe impact on the wheel, and of additional damage to the vehicle beyond a simple puncture. Also to keep you safe we recommend you always call out a breakdown company, if you need to change a tyre on the roadside. They have better equipment, flashing lights and high vis, which minimises the risk to you and your passengers.
4. CHECK YOUR SPARE TYRE MOBILITY KIT REGULARLY
Having correctly inflated spare tyre or a complete and intact mobility kit at the time when you most need them is crucial.
5. EMERGENCY ESSENTIALS
As with any unforeseen incident, it is important to carry emergency essentials at all times in your vehicle; these typically include a torch, mobile phone, high visibility jacket and a warning triangle.
