WASHINGTON—The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will host a #TireWise Twitter chat on May 28 at 3 p.m., the agency said.
Tire safety experts will be on hand during the chat to answer any tire-related questions, NHTSA said.
The TireWise page on NHTSA's Safercar.gov website is dedicated to giving consumers advice and up-to-date information on tire safety and tire maintenance.
In an average year, there are nearly 11,000 tire-related crashes, resulting in nearly 200 deaths, according to the TireWise page.
“Because safety is our top priority, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Department of Transportation want to make sure you have the tools to avoid being in one of those 11,000 crashes,” the website said.
