HANOVER, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--And suddenly it’s winter. Every year, thousands of motorists seem to be taken by surprise when temperatures fall, and the roads are dangerously icy after a frosty night in winter, or even a few snowflakes fall. Only then is there a last minute rush to change over to winter tyres, assuming the right ones are available at short notice.
The last report of the Traffic Department of Polish Police Headquarters alarms that in the group of accidents caused by the poor technical condition of the vehicles, those caused by the lack of proper tyres are on the rise. In 2011 they accounted for roughly 16% of these car crashes, whereas in 2012 the figure rose to almost 22%.* These figures show how important it is to be equipped with tyres adequate to the season, to avoid these accidents. Keeping that in mind, you are better off driving with the special rubber mix not only in ice and snow. "Even with an outside temperature of less than seven degrees Celsius, winter tyres give greater grip and therefore increase driving safety, “says Philip von Grolman from oponytanio.pl.
The smart motorists will try to avoid this, and will fit their winter tyres in good time, before the weather catches them cold. But according to experts, winter tyres can only do their job fully if they have a profile of at least four millimetres.
