COLCHESTER, United Kingdom (April 1, 2014) — Stuart Jackson has been re-elected chairman of the UK’s not-for-profit road safety campaign group TyreSafe.
With the appointment, Mr. Jackson is starting his third term as head of organization he has led since 2010.
“I’m honored to have been re-elected by my colleagues to such a fantastic and worthwhile position,” he said. “We’ve achieved so much as an organization over the last few years, yet there is still a great deal of work to do, so I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to continue playing such an important role.”
TyreSafe was established in 2006 with the sole aim of raising awareness about the dangers associated with illegal and defective tires. Since then, its campaigning has helped reduce by 36 percent the number of people killed or seriously injured each year in the UK in a tire-related accident.
“Last year was TyreSafe’s busiest and most successful to date so it’s important that we don’t lose this momentum,” Mr. Jackson added. “I remain as excited as ever about the challenge ahead and look forward continuing to make our roads a safer place.”
