June 30, 2022—National Tire Safety Week is underway, as declared by the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association.
According to a press release posted by Waste 360, National Tire Safety Week started on June 27 and runs until July 3, 2022.
The purpose of recognizing the week is to educate the public on tire care, tire safety, and tire maintenance.
“Tires enable so much in our daily lives, and they perform so well that many of us can be forgiven for taking our tires for granted. But, like any important investment, they need good care to stay in top shape,” said Anne Forristall Luke, USTMA president and CEO in the press release. “Our member companies invest billions of dollars innovating ever safer and more sustainable products. Tires are the most important safety feature on a vehicle and the only part that actually touches the road. So, each year during National Tire Safety Week, we remind drivers and fleet operators to check their tires and perform simple, but important, maintenance practices before getting behind the wheel.”
