That 42 percent of drivers are unable to identify the low-tire-pressure warning light in the gauge cluster.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has found that underinflated tires are the cause in an estimated 200,000 accidents, 33,000 injuries and 660 deaths each year. Almost as bad, an equal percentage of those polled admitted to rarely checking the air pressure in their tires. This would indicate that nearly half of all drivers on the road don’t recognize the TPMS warning light and aren’t regularly checking their tire pressures.
Driving with properly inflated tires makes vehicles safer and more efficient, and tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) are designed to help alert drivers to underinflated tires. Read the full report here.
