In tough economic times who can afford to waste money on excess fuel? TravelSafer highlights the large cost in money and lives caused by under inflated tires.

Vehicles with low tire pressure are three times more likely to be involved in an accident

NEW YORK, USA, November 17, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Under inflated tires cause U.S. drivers to waste 1.2 billion gallons of fuel annually and according to the U.S. Department of Energy, properly inflated tires can improve fuel efficiency by 3.3 percent and save up to 11 cents per gallon at the pump. Could you do with a few extra dollars in your pocket each week?

And besides that, properly inflated tires are safer, last longer and minimize risk of tire failure by reducing tread movement and rolling resistance, and increasing water dispersion.

Fleet cars and transport vehicles could be an accident waiting to happen, particularly at this time of year.
You go to work each day assuming the car or delivery van you are driving is roadworthy and safe to get you home to your loved ones that night, but many don’t make it.

Vehicles with low tire pressure are three times more likely to be involved in an accident.

Death or injury caused by motor vehicle accidents is far too common in USA. The average annual fatality rate is 1 in 100,000 deaths for workers. Imagine the financial strain along with the physical and emotional pain injured workers and their families must endure.

With the onset of winter chills and snap storms tire pressures can suddenly drop catching many drivers unawares. An under inflation of only 6 psi may seem insignificant, but represents about 20 percent of a tire’s recommended pressure and could lead to tire failure or reduce the tread life by as much as 25 percent.

Travelsafer have developed an inexpensive, easy to use digital tire pressure gauge so you can save money and save lives. You can feel secure knowing exactly how your tire pressure is behaving in inclement, changeable weather any time day or night without having to find a gas station with a gauge that works.

It makes sense for each driver to have access to an easy to use tire pressure gauge kept in their car or transport vehicle so they can safely check their vehicle tire pressures as required.
