The video above shows just how important it is to have a good pair of tyres on your car, especially in winter! They've been working really hard, using information from multiple sources to make sure they do the best job at keeping you safe on the road as they can!
Mumsnet & Michelin joined together to dispel some of those winter driving myths that so many of us believe and that could be putting you & your family in danger!

I was really shocked by some of the results of this survey. What really struck me was the indication that many women simply don't understand the importance that tyres play in their road safety, especially in winter!
So the next time you go out in your car, just have a look at your tyres. A good way of checking the tread depth is to place a 20p in the tread, if it covers up to halfway up the coin you're ok, if not you need to get them replaced!
You wouldn't walk around on icy streets in slippers, so don't drive your car on icy roads with unsuitable tyres!
Tell me; what's your opinion on winter tyres?
