Cheshire firefighters will be out and about around the county, offering drivers the chance to have their cars checked before the colder weather sets in.
Along with partner agencies, firefighters will be carrying out free safety checks on cars as part of their continuing campaign for safer roads in Cheshire.
Tyres will be checked for bulges, tyre depth and pressure by tyre company ATS Tyres and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service mechanics will show drivers how to check oil and water levels and explain the importance of maintaining these levels.
Every driver who has a vehicle check will get a winter driving pack which includes safety leaflets, tyre pressure and depth gauges and a torch.
