Continental Tyre Malaysia 1

Before you make that trip back to your hometown this Hari Raya festive season, it is important to ensure that your tyres are in good working condition. Continental Tyre Malaysia (CTM) has announced its tyre safety check campaign, which will be held from June 9 to July 4, 2016 at four Tesco Extra stores in Peninsular Malaysia.

The tyre safety check campaign is to educate motorists on the importance of proper tyre maintenance in ensuring road safety while on the road during this festive season. “We believe that having taken this step of organising the tyre safety check campaign is doing our part in creating awareness in road safety and making a difference,” said Cameron Wilson, managing director of CTM.

“It is vital that road users continue to be educated that correct tyre inflation pressure and sufficient tread depth are essential to ensure safe motoring. Without these measures, emergency stopping distances can be much longer, which means more accidents at higher impact speeds. So clearly, correct tyre inflation, sufficient tread depth as well as choosing quality tyres can make the difference between life and death,” he added.

The campaign has already started, with the first stop recently concluded at Tesco Extra Alma, Bukit Mertajam a few days ago. The next stop will be at Tesco Extra Mutiara Damansara from June 16 to 19, followed by Tesco Extra Tebrau (June 23 to 26) and the final stop is scheduled to take place at Tesco Extra Bandar Bukit Puchong (June 30 to July 3).

At each of the tyre safety checks, which will run from 10am to 10pm, booklets featuring tyre maintenance tips along with Continental premiums will be distributed to the public. As Continental is also an official sponsor of UEFA Euro 2016, CTM will also organise its UEFA Euro 2016 roadshow at the above-mentioned locations where shoppers can participate in activities to stand a chance at winning limited edition UEFA Euro 2016 merchandise.
