Tyre pressure monitoring system anticipated for the cars of 2012

Environment Published the 18/12/2009

The European commission is campaigning towards improved vehicle safety and protecting the environment. Tyre pressure monitoring systems will become mandatory in all models of cars by 2012.

With this new legislation, the commission aims to promote environmental protection and above all to decrease the number of accidents caused by wrong tyre pressure.  According to a study by the ASF (Autoroute de Sud de la France), 43% of vehicles in France are being driven with badly inflated tyres.
