Attention New York City Drivers: Start The New Year Right With These Tire Safety Tips

bronx car accident lawyer

Did you know that many car accidents throughout New York City and Yonkers are the result of one or more defective tires?  In fact the most common cause of defective tires is due to under-inflation. Low or wrong tire pressure can result in excessive flexing. Usually a combination of long trips, high  speeds, heavy loads cause stress to an already worn out tire and may even cause it to pop.

Be aware of these defective tire warning signs…

– Slits, cuts or cracks often caused by road debris

– Wear and tear – avoid driving a car with “bald” tires with little to no traction

– Under-Inflation – tire that is not properly inflated

– Vibration – if your tires shake it is probably due to misalignment meaning and you need to take the car in to get the wheels balanced.

Bronx Car Accident Lawyer Shares Tire Safety Tips:

Be sure to have your tires professionally assessed during your inspection visits. Proper tire maintenance is very important. For maximum tire performance, it is suggested you rotate your tires. Refer to your vehicle’s owner manual for more information. Avoid uneven wear and tear and and extend the life of your tires by having them balanced. Make sure your tires are aligned. Of course, the rule of thumb to avoid tire safety issues is to start with the purchasing the right tire for your vehicle and the type of driving you do. Extreme conditions such as heat, heavy rains and severe winter weather should be considered when you are looking to purchase tires, or to purchase a vehicle with its unique tire needs such as a sports car or SUV.

Making sure your tires are in good working condition will certainly ward off a potential accident.
