Government plans to make nitrogen filled tyres mandatory

Government plans to make nitrogen filled tyres mandatory

In an effort to prevent road accidents, Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has asked Rajya Sabha to consider making it mandatory for vehicle manufacturers to provide nitrogen-filled tyres and improve quality of tyres by mixing silicon with rubber. As per international standards, silicon is mixed with rubber and nitrogen is filled in tyres to reduce the chances of a tyre burst due to excessive heat as it helps maintain pressure better.

Gadkari further added that central government has prepared a Rs 14,000 crore plan that will help in preventing road accidents that could help save precious lives. He informed that road accidents have decreased in Tamil Nadu while Uttar Pradesh tops the list. The minister also favoured technological advancement in automobiles for preventing road accidents and has urged members to pass a bill on road safety that has been pending before the Parliament since the last one year. 

The Indian government has been prescribing standard safety norms to manufacturers in the country. The latest safety norms required cars to be sold with driver's side airbag, rear parking sensors, front seat-belt reminder and a high-speed alert system.
