5% of Crashes Caused by Low Tire Pressure

Detroit News - May 12, 2012

A new gov­ern­ment study says 5 per­cent of vehi­cles involved in crash­es expe­ri­enced tire prob­lems. The study warned that under­in­flat­ed tires are at sig­nif­i­cant­ly high­er risk of caus­ing a crash. The Nation­al High­way Traf­fic Safe­ty Admin­is­tra­tion says a study of crash data from 2005–2007 found that vehi­cles with tires under­in­flat­ed by 25 per­cent or more were three times as like­ly to be involved in a crash linked to tire prob­lems.
