A two-year collaboration through a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed by Michelin and Essilor to raise awareness of the importance of good vision on the road and functional tires.

The two organizations say that poor vision and tires in a bad state of use are two main risk factors for road safety.

The aim of the collaboration is to raise awareness on a global and country scale, through eye screenings and tire check-ups for employees, customers and the public.

“Tires and vision are two essential factors for the safety of drivers to which Michelin and Essilor are strongly committed: we have decided to formalize our common engagement for road safety through a long-term collaboration agreement,” said Eric Le Corre, Corporate Vice-President Public Affairs at Michelin.
