As the weather cools down in the Northern Hemisphere, auto experts warn that the number of blowouts due to low tire pressure levels increases. To help avoid these types of accidents, some auto manufacturers are installing wireless sensors in their tires. These systems have a dashboard light that signals when a vehicle's tires are under inflated. To further expand this safety feature, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has mandated that all new vehicles sold after Sept. 1, 2007 has tire pressure monitoring systems.
