DVLA engineer calls on drivers to inspect their wheel bolts regularly

A senior engineer with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority, DVLA, Hohoe Office, Samuel Ankudey has advised drivers to inspect their wheel bolts and nuts regularly to prevent road accidents.

Speaking on Lorlornyo FM’s Day Break programme this morning, he said the bolts and nuts are subjected to vibration when vehicles are driven  and loosen overtime and may result in wheels coming off if not inspected and corrected regularly.

He called on drivers to ensure mechanics working on their vehicles tighten their wheels with quality bolts and nuts and the right specification of torque.

He called on motorcyclist to always wear quality helmets whenever they go out for a ride so as to protect themselves in case of accidents.

He said motorcycle accidents are more likely to cause serious injuries or death than car accidents because cars provide greater protection for the driver and passengers.

He said Helmets reduce the risk of death and head injuries in times of crashes.
