Underinflated tires on motor vehicles cause
crashes due to tire blow-outs, immobilized vehicles,
poor handling as well as hydroplaning. ACCU-PRESSURE
SAFETY CAPS are a new tire pressure monitor product
which will help drivers know when their tire pressure
is too low. Ft. Lauderdale ACCU-PRESSURE SAFETY
CAPS, INC. is the exclusive distributor for the
product. The chrome caps simply go over the tire's
valve stem and will display green when the tire
pressure is adequate, yellow if approximately
four pounds underinflated, and red when approximately
ten pounds underinflated.
The NHTSA, the Transportation Department agency
responsible for vehicle safety, estimates that
monitoring tire pressure could prevent over 10,000
injuries and countless deaths.
"In addition to preventing blow-outs, maintaining
proper pressure will minimize wear on the tire",
says ACCU-PRESSURE SAFETY CAPS, INC. CEO Adam
Goldberg. "This product is simple to use,
inexpensive, retailing around $19.99 for a set
of four, and provides the driver with a visual
reminder to keep tire pressure at the proper level."
The government has proposed a new rule mandating
that all vehicles made after November 2003 have
systems to warn drivers about low tire pressure.
This is in response to last year's recall of 6.5
million Firestone tires.
ACCU-PRESSURE SAFETY CAPS are currently sold
at select auto parts and tire stores, or online
