TyreSafe now sits on the National Road Safety Committee, run by the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) as part of its ongoing wider strategy to increase the awareness of tyre safety.
TyreSafe, the UK’s tyre safety charity, continues to work with the public, retailers, members and road safety organisations to prevent and reduce tyre related incidents.
RoSPA’s National Road Safety Committee is a UK-focused network working towards a vision of zero deaths and serious injuries on our roads. It is the principal RoSPA advisory committee on matters of road safety.
RoSPA is a not-for-profit organisation that has worked for more than 100 years to help people recognise and reduce their risk of accidents, at home, on the road, at work and at leisure. RoSPA’s Road Safety department produces a vast array of advice and information on all areas of road safety and accident prevention. It takes the same holistic and all-encompassing approach to road safety, providing information and support for road users and pedestrians.
TyreSafe will work with RoSPA to provide tyre safety resources and campaign materials to support its delivery of road safety initiatives to help reduce accidents.
The partnership also sees RoSPA joining TyreSafe as an official supporter, with the accompanying access to campaign materials via the website. These materials have been created by TyreSafe through research and collaboration.
TyreSafe Chair, Stuart Lovatt, is also now a regular contributor to RoSPA’s ‘Care on the Road’ publication, to further increase the reach of the partnership.
He said “This is a truly valuable partnership for both organisations, who have shared values in raising awareness of risk and reducing it through driving behaviour change. We look forward, as an organisation, to providing valuable input as part of this committee and also in the wider context of helping and supporting people with staying safe. With so many adults using vehicles for work and leisure, we believe this partnership is integral in reducing preventable accidents.”
Rebecca Guy, Road Safety Manager at RoSPA said, “In the pursuit of reducing harm on the UK’s roads, as well as promoting key safety information, it’s always beneficial to unite with likeminded organisations. We are therefore thrilled to see TyreSafe join our National Road Safety Committee.
As a charity that has importantly worked tirelessly to raise awareness of the importance of correct tyre maintenance and the dangers of defective and illegal tyres, we are also pleased to announce that we have recently bocame TyreSafe members, and look forward to sharing and learning from each other in the coming years.”
