Boost Safety For Your Car And Your Family
The Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability and Documentation (or TREAD) Act was enacted in 2000 as a response to tire pressure-related fatalities. It mandates car manufacturers to provide a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in every car they build. Even with this law, according to AAA, 1-in-4 cars on the road have at least one underinflated tire. Moreover, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, vehicles with just one tire underinflated by 25% or more are 300% more likely to get into a crash. Often drivers with factory-installed, indirect TPMS, enjoy a false sense of security since they believe they would be able to see an underinflated tire by simply looking at the car. However, it is nearly impossible for someone to tell the difference just by looking.
Meet The Boyers
Christina and Cameron make up a typical activity-oriented family. The two, along with their son, lead a busy life that keeps them on the road for many hours of the day. Hence, Christina says safety is her number one priority for the family. When they’re going to and from activities, she wants to be 100 percent sure that they are safe. Since tire pressure is something that she can’t control, she checks her air pressure regularly when she fills up on gas, which takes up time.
"As someone who takes driving safety seriously, I find myself manually checking each tire’s pressure because my factory installed TPMS only alerts me in the case of a problem. Even then, I never know which tire has an issue or what kind of problem it may be. If I were able to use a product like the ZUS Smart Tire Safety Monitor that allows me to see what is going on with each tire, it would be the added peace of mind that I am looking for." - Christina B., 33
