WASHINGTON (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
June 2-8 will be National Tire Safety Week for 2013, the Rubber Manufacturers Association has announced.
Held annually since 2002, National Tire Safety Week is an initiative of the RMA's "Be Tire Smart—Play Your PART" educational program to inform drivers of how to make sure their tires remain in good working condition.
Tire manufacturers and retailers nationwide participate in National Tire Safety Week to educate motorists about proper tire care and maintenance, the RMA said. More than 20,000 tire dealers, auto dealers and auto repair shops participated in 2012, offering "Be Tire Smart" brochures and other materials as well as advertising, promotions, free tire pressure checks and community and media outreach.
