TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The fiery crash on I-10 on Monday, May 22, is just another reminder why drivers should check their tires during triple-digit weather.

Andy Jordan has been driving tractor-trailers for about 40 years. 

Jordan has had his front tires go out on him twice. He says that can make it tough for the driver to steer. That’s why he begins every trip with a check of his tires. 

The Arizona Department of Public Safety has a reminder list for drivers:

  • Check your tires regularly.
  • Make sure they are in good condition.
  • Make sure they are inflated to the recommended pressure. You can find that information inside your doorjamb or in your car's manual.
