US States Lent Support to 2008 NTSW
The RMA says that 25 states in the US issued proclamations or statements supporting National Tire Safety Week, which comes to a close on April 26.
Across the nation, more than 19,000 tyre retail, auto dealer and automotive repair facilities distributed tyre care RMA-produced NTSW brochures, and many of these also offered free tyre care service to motorists. “Proper tyre care is essential to vehicle safety and optimum fuel economy,” said Dan Zielinski, RMA senior vice president of public affairs. “We are grateful to states that are helping to educate motorists to take just five minutes every month to check their tyres.”
States supporting NTSW this year included: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Virginia.
