Continental has just launched a microsite showing the different tyre-related breakdown regulations and emergency protocols that they should follow for 24 European countries.
A breakdown is a troublesome event for truck and bus drivers – and one where they need help fast. In the current coronavirus crisis, it is more important than ever for them to get fast support and information on what to do, given the crucial part they play in keeping supplies of urgently needed goods flowing smoothly.
On cross-border trips in particular, drivers can feel lost in the event of a breakdown and need to be aware of the emergency protocols that they should follow. In response, Continental, a technology company and manufacturer of premium tyres, has compiled information for drivers and fleet managers about the different tyre-related breakdown regulations for trucks and buses in 24 European countries.
The document is available for download from Continental’s website (https://www.continental-tyres.co.uk/truck/knowhow) and, in addition to listing the actions drivers should take in the event of a tyre breakdown, also provides contact details for Continental’s Conti360° Breakdown Service hotline in each country.
