Free car inspections offered to travelers

The University’s police and parking departments, in partnership with Hartmann’s Towing, will once again sponsor a free traveler’s vehicle inspection service to faculty, staff and students.

Persons anticipating traveling by car for the holiday break can have their vehicle inspected free of charge from noon-3 p.m. Dec. 13 at the parking lot outside the police/parking office on the South 40.

Tire pressure, fluid levels, wipers, headlights and taillights will be checked. Fluids will be topped off thanks to local businesses that have donated oil and windshield-washer fluid.

Health and wellness staff members will be washing windows. University Police’s Bear Patrol will also assist.

“Too often we all neglect to check our vehicles before taking off on a trip,” said Don Strom, chief of University Police. “This is a great, quick and easy opportunity for members of our campus community to get their vehicles inspected and help ensure they have a safe trip over the upcoming holidays.”
