NHTSA Urges Hot Weather Air Pressure Checks

August 21, 2007

WASHINGTON – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is running a new TV ad encouraging drivers to check their tire pressure during hot weather months, according to Modern Tire Dealer magazine.

"Overloaded vehicles, under-inflated tires and hot weather can all combine to possibly turn a family vacation into a horrific nightmare," says NHTSA Administrator Nicole Nason.

NHTSA officials also say that "recent research shows that hot weather can also impact the tire aging process, particularly in warm climate states."
