ATS urges winter tyre upgrades to avoid accidents

ATS Euromaster is reminding vehicle and fleet owners to prepare their vehicles for the winter months ahead, as temperatures across the UK begin to drop.

The company referred to the Department for Transport’s 2012 statistics, which showed that snow and ice caused more than 6,000 road accidents in the UK last year.

ATS Euromaster’s group sales director, Peter Fairlie, said: “The DfT statistics prove how dangerous UK roads can be during winter. It’s little wonder we’ve continued to see an uptake in fleet managers equipping cars and vans with cold weather tyres.”
