VIDEO: TyreSafe explains aquaplaning

Published 15 October 2014

Tyre safety charity TyreSafe has produced a video to explain the dangers of aquaplaning, as well as to highlight the best ways to mitigate the hazards.

“Our latest movie illustrates perfectly why it’s so important to regularly check your tyre tread depth at this time of year,” comments Stuart Jackson, chairman, TyreSafe.

“Not only are braking, cornering and acceleration all affected by low tread depth, but in heavy rain, there’s a real risk of aquaplaning which could cause you to lose control of your vehicle, placing yourself, your passengers and other road users at an increased risk of being involved in an accident.”
