US tyre association postpones safety week
The U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) has postponed its 2020 National Tire Safety Week campaign, which was scheduled to take place between 18 and 24 May, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As we cope as a nation with the COVID-19 health emergency and economic crisis, USTMA felt it was in the best interest of our members and industry partners to reschedule so they can continue to focus on the safety and well-being of their employees, business operations and the communities in which they operate,” said Anne Forristall Luke, president and chief executive officer of the USTMA. “In the interim, USTMA will focus its efforts on educating the public, especially those who may not be driving frequently, on how to ensure proper maintenance and care for their tyres, so that when they do need their vehicles, they can do so confidently and safely.”
The USTMA says it will announce a rescheduled date as soon as it is confirmed.
