Francesco Gori, special testimonial at the session on the safety of vehicles and the infrastructure, presented the priorities of the ETRMA, placing an accent on the fundamental role of the tyre, the only point of contact between the vehicle and the road. Checking tyre pressures, the use of winter tyres and of homologated tyres were among the crucial components for travelling in safety.
