Initiative details

Welche Zielgruppen haben Sie? 
Everybody concerned with mobility.
Welches Problem wollen Sie angehen? 
Tyres are the only point of contact between the vehicle and the road, which is no larger than the surface of a postcard. It is therefore essential that drivers choose the right tyres and make proper use of all information available to them, starting with the information on the tyre label. Furthermore, once purchased, drivers are required to maintain them in good service conditions.
Was planen Sie zu tun? Beschreiben Sie Ihre Ziele: 
In the effort to promote good practice with regard to Road Safety, the ETRMA has launched the TyreAWARE campaign, which consists of basic guidelines and recommendations for tyre dealers and consumers.
The materials available on the website are intended to help the value chain to share best practices about tyre handling and storage, service life and basic tyre safety and maintenance for consumers.
