With winter on its way, it’s time to start preparing your vehicle for winter driving. To raise awareness about the benefits of winter tyres, BMW and AIR Brussels created ‘The Moving Billboard.’
Winter weather can be unpredictable and make driving treacherous and stressful. Ice, snow, freezing rain and fog increase the risks on roads. This is where winter tires come into play.
In most EU countries, including Belgium, winter tyres for cars are not mandatory. However, experts recommend you switch your tyres from summer to winter. When the temperature drops below 7°C, even if there is no snow, summer tyres become less efficient and winter tyres are much better adapted to winter conditions as they have special rubber compounds designed to improve traction, handling and braking not only on snow, slush and ice but also on wet and frozen roads.🚘🌨🌧
To reveal the difference, BMW in partnership with agency Air Brussels have created ‘The Moving Billboard,’ a billboard that tells you about the advantages of winter tyres and demonstrates them.
The idea is as follows: a seemingly ordinary billboard was installed alongside a busy road in Brussels, so when drivers stop in front of a red light, the billboard suddenly starts moving backwards, showing the message on the screen: ‘In winter you would only have stopped here.’ This means that driving a car with winter tyres is less risky and the braking distance is shorter.
Take care of yourselves and others on the road! How about swapping your summer tyres for winter ones? 😉
