LONDON (Nov. 17, 2014) — The tire industry in the United Kingdom and various government agencies have agreed to work more closely together in order to reduce tire-related road casualties every year.
Speaking at a Nov. 7 briefing, Stuart Jackson, chairman of Tyresafe, a U.K. tire safety organization, said the move came following a positive meeting hosted by the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS).
That meeting, which took place at the House of Commons on Nov. 5, was attended by various members of Parliament and government agency representatives.
“It's clear that the tire industry has a shared vision about how we can work collaboratively to help reduce road casualties further, and with further support from government, its agencies and other stakeholders, I'm confident we can continue to make a real difference,” Mr. Jackson added.
