How TPMS Affects Safety

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that approximately 11,000 vehicle accidents a year are associated with tire failure. Under-inflated tires increase stress on tire components and result in poor handling.

A national survey by the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) found that one in six US drivers check the tire pressure on their vehicles, a serious safety risk. The NHTSA estimates the implementation of TPMS for all vehicles will significantly reduce the number of vehicle accidents caused by tire failure.
