Tyresafe logo Tyresafe has launched a new section on its website dedicated to caravan tyre safety.

The pages, introduced to coincide with the 10th annual National Camping and Caravanning Week, will provide information to keep people safe and legal on the roads.

"Making sure your caravan's tyres are in a good condition, correctly inflated and not overloaded is a vital factor in staying safe on the road. The new caravan section on our website is designed to clearly explain these key issues and provide some practical tips and advice that owners can follow with ease, helping to ensure their holiday journeys pass off without incident." Chairman of Tyresafe, Stuart Jackson

The Camping and Caravan Club reported an increase of 64,000 members in 2009 making tyre safety as important as ever for those travelling on the roads.

"Our early advance bookings are up three per cent on the same time last year so this season could be even busier than last. With such high numbers taking to the roads, it is essential that owners take tyre safety seriously and make the necessary checks to their vehicles." Jon Dale from the Camping and Caravan Club

The section will take owners through tyre pressures, tyre types, overloading, tread depth, nose weight, winter storage and common types of wear and damage.
