About

The Tyre Safety Council was established in 1991 with the purpose to disseminate and raise the awareness of consumers and public authorities about tyres and the related safety aspects from a non-profit and brand-neutral point of view.
 
For some years the council has arranged random tyre inspections together with the national police in order to put tyre safety on the motorists' agenda.
