As a retired traffic patrol police officer, I have seen far too many bodies at road crashes so I’m fastidious about highway safety, which very much includes tire safety!
From Car & Driver’s blog, excellent news that “…Michelin and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile [FIA] (Foundation?) have secured commitments from all 50 U.S. states to include consistent tire-maintenance and safety information in their driver education programs.”
There are 51 booklets that can be thought of as state drivers’ manuals in the USA because, apart from the 50 actual states, DC has one, too. And back in 2006 — dare I say “bravely!” — I read them all and then wrote a research paper on my findings. It was published by the Society of Automotive Engineers [SAE] at their World Congress, in Detroit, in 2007. (For the sake of perspective, I will add that to my surprise and great pleasure, my presentation of the paper to a technically very adept audience won me an SAE award for being judged to be in the top five percent of the hundreds of papers presented by their authors at the multi-day event.)
