You don't hear much about punctures these days so it is surprising to note that a recent 'easytrip' survey discovered that three-in-four motorists have had one in the past year. A quarter had one in the past three months.

The survey found that 55pc would get to the nearest tyre dealer ASAP to get a puncture fixed.

Nearly 20pc replaced the damaged tyre with a spare while we were more likely to drive on the spare for longer.

The survey comes as easytrip partner with Advance Pitstop on 'Puncture Protect'. This gives easytrip members unlimited puncture repairs at Advance Pitstop's 30 outlets.
