Checking Your Tyre Pressure
Under inflated tyres create more resistance when your car is moving, which means your engine has to work harder, so more fuel is used and more CO2 emissions are produced. Simply check and adjust your tyre pressures regularly and also before long journeys. This will also help to increase the life of your tyres. Under inflated tyres increase CO2 but over inflated tyres can be unsafe so check your car manual for the correct tyre pressures. Remember, a car with a heavier load may need different air pressure in the tyres.
Illegal Tyre(s) Penalty
There is a maximum fine of up to £2500 and three penalty points on your licence for each illegal tyre.
