there is an element of personal responsibility (i.e., actually checking the tire pressure) that can't be ignored just because someone has tpms.
I see what you mean now.
I was responding to your claim of "90% TPMS malfunction". The TPMS isn't malfunctioning, it's actually working. It's up to the driver to check at that point and add air and observe etc. You're right, some people do not understand or take into account personally having to check tires under these circumstances.
