Drivers warned of tire blast risk as freeway baked at 63 degrees Celsius in Vietnam

/ Tuoi TreThe official said the temperature of the thruway surface reached 63 degrees Celsius at 12:00 pm on Thursday, when the team directly measured it. "We cannot definitively attribute all recent tire explosion incidents to overheated road surfaces, but extreme heat may indeed elevate tire pressure, potentially resulting in tire blasts," Major Thuong stated. Furthermore, given the absence of rest stops along the over-100-km expressway, vehicles are compelled to travel continuously, which likely exacerbates the buildup of pressure inside tires, eventually leading to explosions, as indicated by the department. Most recently, a car suffered a tire blast when it was driving south-north on the section of the freeway in Hue City on Thursday morning. In an emergency along the route, drivers should promptly dial 0949.05.05.08 to request assistance from traffic police forces.
