Do Your Drivers Know their Company Vehicle is not Equipped with a Spare Tire?
As a fleet manager, it is your responsibility to let drivers know their company vehicle is not equipped with a spare tire.

Approximately 36 percent of model-year 2015 vehicles were not equipped with a spare tire. This compares to 5 percent in 2006.
