Driving with underflated tyres increases chances of being involved in a tyre-related incident on the road. Not only does the vehicle become more difficult to control, the amount of tyre in contact with the road can be halved. If it isn't touching the road properly, a tyres's grip is compromised, meaning it takes longer to stop , especially in the wet.
Underflated tyres also run up unnecessary bills. A tyre can wear 10% more quickly if it's 10% below the manufacturer's recommended setting and the extra effort needed to turn the wheel means the vehicle burns use more fuel.
To reduce the risks while driving and save yourself money, drivers are reminded to check their air pressures at least once a month and before long journeys.
