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."

The agency's commercial can be viewed at www.nhtsa.dot.gov/multimedia/TV/HotTires.wmv.
