Check Your Tyre Pressures

Why is it important to check your pressures regularly?

Correct tyre pressure is vital to your safety on the road. Under-inflated tyres affect handling and grip, potentially causing irregular or unpredictable vehicle behaviour. They are also much more likely to suffer from a dangerous sudden rapid deflation, especially on high-speed motorway journeys.

By keeping your tyres at their optimum pressure, your running costs are also reduced. Under-inflated tyres require a bigger force to make them turn, so your car uses more fuel. Additionally, tyres which are not set to their correct pressure wear out more quickly.

So, to benefit from lower fuel bills, longer tyre life, increased safety and reduced CO2 emissions, make sure you check your tyre pressures at least once a month and before a long journey.

£12.50 London motorcycle toll approved

RIDERS of motorcycles made before 2007 will have to pay a £12.50 daily charge to enter central London under the approval of a new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ).

The daily toll will be introduced on September 7, 2020, and affects bikes made before July 2007, when the European emission standard known as ‘Euro 3’ became a minimum requirement for new motorcycles.

The ULEZ will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will charge bikes at the same rate as cars and vans under Transport for London’s plans.

According to TFL, ‘cameras will read your number plate as you enter, leave or drive within the zone and check it against the database for those who meet the ULEZ standards or need to pay the daily charge’.

The ULEZ website lists options to avoid the charge, which include getting a new vehicle that meets the emissions standard or re-routing your journey to avoid the zone. In other words, get a new bike or do one.

The Mayor of London has said the new low emission zone will encourage the use of new, cleaner vehicles, improving the quality of life and health of Londoners.
