Following series of road crashes in Nigeria resulting from tyre blow-outs, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) is organising a Stakeholders’ forum on tyres where issues relating with the use and safety of tyres are to be discussed.

The FRSC’ Head of Media Relations and Strategy, Bisi Kazeem, in a statement said that the summit is aimed at re-educating Nigerians on the general knowledge of tyres, types of tyres, how to care for tyres, and useful tips in the case of a blow out or tyre burst.

According to him, issues such as standards, important tyre markings for the different types of tyres, sizes, lifespan from date of manufacture to expiry date, tyre pressure, storage, and other essential safety issues will be addressed such that Nigerians will understand that tyre is a very important component of a vehicle.
