Today an indicator on the dashboard of our car indicated a problem with tyre pressure. As is the modern way, we carry no spare wheel, just a messy system to re-inflate the tyre with a gloopy compound.
Unsure, even after a mandatory kick of the tyres, which tyre or tyres were the cause, I went to a BP Petrol Station to pump up the tyres. The cost of adding air to the tyre was 50 pence. That’s not good value to my mind, verging on the extortionate. Even after this the pesky warning sign was still showing on the dashboard.
Therefore, I visited Merit Tyre in Bagshot, who were happy to provide free air, and good advice. Should have gone their first. Maybe it’s the potholes in local roads that caused the problem. I’ll never know, although I’m thinking of blaming this one on the Maultway in Heatherside.
I’ve reported it to Surrey County Council Highways. Must say, their reporting system is nifty, as it’s possible to place an indicator mark on a street map. Impressive.
