The police are collaborating with over 20 government and non-government organizations to emphasize the significance of selecting appropriate tires, ensuring their tread depth complies with safety and legal standards, and conducting monthly inflation checks for motorists.


When was the last time you checked your tyres? A tyre without much tread left or low pressure can severely compromise both grip and stopping distances.

Car owners should be checking their tyres once a month to ensure they have enough tread depth, the tyres are not damaged, and are at the correct air pressure. As tyres are the source of contact between the car and the road, the condition of a car's tyres impacts on stopping distance, handling and fuel efficiency.

Tyres are the only source of contact between your car and the road. They’re vitally important to a car’s safety and fuel economy, but many drivers check them rarely – if at all. This is why a range of government agencies, motoring industry businesses and the AA have joined together for Tyre Awareness Week.

“We want vehicle owners to make sure their vehicles are roadworthy at all times, not just at the one point in time when their warrant or certificate of fitness is issued,” says Superintendent Carey Griffiths, National Manager Road Policing.

Running a successful Auckland moving company with several trucks on the road and a number of staff members requires a lot of management and attention to detail. Deben Raut of Raut Enterprises Ltd based in Kumeu says “I’ve been operating  Auckland movers companies since 2015 as an independent industry specializing in spa Pools , piano moving ,single items ,trademe delivery and all furniture pick up and delivery related moving jobs right across the north shore of Auckland”.

The one tip I would give to all companies large and small is log everything, when i perform tyre checks I log it so we have a record and photos of the tyres of each vehicle . Its just too dangerous not to , said Raut.
