Richmond Park's MP visits children to hear their views

Zac Goldsmith MP visited Newland House School in Twickenham on Tuesday 31st January, to hear from pupils about their campaign to increase drivers awareness on their car tyre pressure.

The campaign came about after 4 members of the School’s Eco Engineering Club, Hector Kelly, Max Evans, Patrick Bamforth and Jadon Softly, researched the effects of tyre pressure on CO2 production. They discovered that driving with tyres under the optimum pressure, not only produced a 15-30% reduction in tyre life and a 3-4% increase in fuel consumption, but was responsible for a CO2 output of up to 4 Million Tonnes CO2 per year.

70-90% of drivers don’t check their tyre pressure, but the boys concluded that it would only take 358 drivers to do so, to produce a fuel saving of 19,000 litres - a full fuel tanker - per year.

The boys researched and identified which device available on the market today would best draw drivers attention to their tyre pressure, and they chose the low-cost, Tyre Pressure LED valve cap system as the most efficient example.


During their presentation to the MP, the group took it in turns to demonstrate how the device worked, and described how it provided drivers with an easy to read, visual indication of the pressure in each tyre, making it obvious for drivers to know when it was time for a pump up.

The Newland House pupils will help promote and advertise the product, and for each unit they sell, the system’s suppliers will pay any profit to the Charity, Shooting Star Chase.
